We are using Access Manager with Cognos 7.4 and there doesn't seem to be anybody that has the password for a couple of the default.csa files. The files define user access for a particular server and I need to gain Creator access to some catalogs on that server. I've tried the default passwords without success.
I would prefer to not re-create these catalogs as I dont know exactly what databases and tables are used (the names/fields are aliased). Is it possible to get access to these files without the password? Does Cognos Support have a utility to access the password?

Re: Access Manager lost password options2012-06-05T17:10:24ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I have heard there is an IBM utility that comes with Cognos called "CatalogPickLock.exe" and this utility allows the user to reset the password for a catalog. Is this tool available online? or is it only on the installation media(CD/DVD)?
