Pinned topic IBM HTTP Server on RDz UT

‏2012-04-16T15:16:13Z |
Hello

I'm trying to use the IBM HTTP Server supplied with RDz UT, I'm able to access the IHS welcome page but when I try to click the configuration page, I'm asked to supply a user id and password.

Any idea what is the user id and password to be used here?
Thanks,
Juzer

    If you are using the HTTP server with the default httpd.conf file then any valid RACF userid and password should work to access the admin. If you have modified the server config, then you'll need to review the HTTP server doc and infocenter.

    Thanks for the update, RDzJohn. I haven't modified the httpd.conf file but still I'm not able to access admin. I tried to log in using IBMUSER and ADCDMST but to no avail.

    Use the messages in the http server log file and/or syslog to help you discover why you can't logon. The HTTP proc should point to the config file and envvars that it is using.

    Where can I locate the log file? Can you also please let me know the HLQ for HTTP proc?

    Thanks,

    Juzer,

    the log files are in:

    /web/httpd1/logs

    Have a look at the http-errors file ... You should find the error "IMW0197E NOT AUTHORIZED"

    The user "ibmuser" is not allowed to configure the HTTP server. Set a new password for the
    user WEBADM in TSO/ISPF with this command:
    _________

    TSO ALU WEBADM PASSWORD(password123) RESUME
    ________

    Now you can log on with the user "webadm" and the password "password123". Add your user
    (or IBMUSER ... if you want) to the HTTP administrators.

    Hi Ralf

    Thanks for the info.

    I'm unable to find the http-errors in the /web/httpd1/logs directory. However, there is a large number of back dated httpd-errors files like httpd-errors.Jun162001 but all of them are blank.

    But the good news is that I'm able to log in using the webadm user id after changing the password as you mentioned.

    Thanks a lot, Ralf!

    If you have 0 byte log files ...

    1. Shut down the HTTP server from a SDSF panel
    ===> /P HTTPD1

    2. Delete all log files in /web/httpd1/logs

    3. Start the HTTP server:
    ===> /P HTTPD1

    Now the server starts to log the errors/access.

    Make a backup of the log files before you delete them (if you share the system with other users)
