suggests I should be able to login from IBM Infomation Server Manager with user name wasadmin/isadmin and with a null password. But when I am trying to do Add Domain it asks me for Domain, Username and Password and my input is as follows:
username=wasadmin or isadmin
I can't proceed to login as it asks me to provide a password. What could be wrong, provided it didn't ask me for any userid and password during installation.

Re: What is the default username and password for IBM Information Server v8?2010-09-10T13:22:48Z in response to ArifJubaerDuring the installation process, an Information Server administration id and password would have been requested -- the defaults would likely be either 'admin' or 'isadmin' for the userid, but the password would have been required for entry.
This administrative id controls creation of other userids and their privileges. In the Information Center you can review the topic on creating userids.
To create the userids, the Info Server administrator must log on to the Info Server web console and add users. If you are planning to use Information Analyzer, the user created must have at least the IA User role. To add metadata for data analysis, you will need a user with the IA Data Administrator role. To create IA projects and add data sources to those projects, you will need a user with the IA Project Administrator role.
For more on Information Analyzer roles and security see:
Once you have the user created via the web console and have IA related privileges assigned, you will be able to log in to the Information Server console.

Thank you for the reply.
I should have mentioned that while I am trying to install the Information Server it was not asking me for any username or password. I found the version that I have is for windows 2003 server but I was trying to install it in my Windows 7 professional 64 bit machine. Do you think that could be a problem?
Is there any version of Information Server to install in Windows 7? I havent seen one from IBM web site.
By the way two of your links are not working for me.
Thanks and looking forward to hear from you all.

Re: What is the default username and password for IBM Information Server v8?2010-09-13T12:55:54Z in response to ArifJubaerHi Arif,
The current 8.1 version of Information Server, as well as associated product versions such as Information Analyzer 8.1.2, are only supported on Windows 2003 Server, so, yes, trying to install on Windows 7 may be an issue. System requirements are available at: Link: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=14&uid=swg21315971#dqx1dt2mg5
If the links for the documentation were not working, try: Link: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iisinfsv/v8r1/index.jsp and browse to the relevant sections on installation and security. If you are not able to access this successfully, I'd suggest contacting the product support team to see if they can help you through the installation and setup process.

Re: What is the default username and password for IBM Information Server v8?2010-10-19T00:03:13Z in response to smithhaHi,
I am installed IBM Information Server 8.1 on Windows 2003 server R2. I provided the password for both Wasadmin and isadmin.
I am able to loginto Webapp server using wasadmin.
I am able to loginto IBM Information Server console using isadmin.
But I am not able to login to IBM Information Server Web Console using isadmin. While installation its mentinoed that, with the provided credentials we will be able to login using isadmin.
Another thing I found is, when I give credentials for isadmin, no error is shown. Its just showing the same login window again without any errors.
Am I missing anything here?
Please help me.
