Abstract

Did you know? is a replacement of wasadmin user in ITM eWAS possible ?

Body

The IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.x is using an embedded eWAS, where the default user is "wasadmin".

This user will be used, when you need to enable your ITM with LDAP or set some traces in the eWAS.
For some reason clients asking us, if it's possible to replace the default "wasadmin" user by their own user.
The answer is, yes you can replace this default "wasadmin" user. In the following example you will replace "wasadmin" by "myewasadmin".
The steps can be taken on the fly. Re-cycle or better reconfigure the TEPS afterwards.
Please replace the "wasadmin" by "myewasadmin" in the following files:

Windows:

c:\IBM\ITM\CNPSJ\profiles\ITMProfile\config\cells\ITMCell\fileRegistry.xml

c:\IBM\ITM\CNPSJ\profiles\ITMProfile\config\cells\ITMCell\security.xml

c:\IBM\ITM\CNPSJ\profiles\ITMProfile\properties\soap.client.props

UNIX:

/opt/IBM/ITM/lx8266/iw/profiles/ITMProfile/config/cells/ITMCell/fileRegistry.xml

/opt/IBM/ITM/lx8266/iw/profiles/ITMProfile/config/cells/ITMCell/security.xml

/opt/IBM/ITM/lx8266/iw/profiles/ITMProfile/properties/soap.client.props

add the following into:

Windows:
c:\IBM\ITM\CNPS\kfwenv

KFW_CORBA_AUTHN_ID=myewasadmin

UNIX:
/opt/IBM/ITM/config/cq.ini

KFW_CORBA_AUTHN_ID=myewasadmin

The files should be look after the replacement like:

fileRegistry.xml

soap.client.props

security.xml

What's about the password for the new "mywasadmin" user. This need to be set in the MTEMS e/TEPS menu again.
