AppServerAdmin command

If you change the default WebSphere® Application Server administration credentials or the repository credentials, use the AppServerAdmin command to update the new credentials across your configuration.

Location

Issue the command from the root_directory/InformationServer/ASBServer/bin directory.
The AppServerAdmin command has two options: -was and -db.
-was option
If you change the default WebSphere Application Server administrator user name and password, this command updates the user name and password throughout the WebSphere Application Server configuration.
You can change the WebSphere Application Server default administrator user name and password in the following cases:
  • If you change the WebSphere Application Server user registry configuration in the WebSphere Application Server Administration console and the server ID and password for the current user registry is changed or a new user registry is configured.
  • If the WebSphere Application Server default administrator is deleted from the configured registry or if that user's password is changed or expired.
You must run the -was option each time the WebSphere Application Server default administrator credentials are changed.
-db option
The xmeta or repository user credentials are used by WebSphere Application Server to connect to the IBM® Information Server repository. If you change the xmeta or repository user name and password, this command updates the user name and password throughout WebSphere Application Server and the IBM Information Server configuration.
You might have to change the repository credentials if the original user was deleted from the registry or if that user's password changed or expired. You must run this command each time the xmeta or repository user credentials are changed.
