We're running an AdminUI and after having changed the external
Administrator password, we can't login anymore in the AdminUI.
How can we solve this ?
Policy Server 12.8
You can modify the connection password for the External Admin Store as
provided by our documentation :
Update External Administrator Store Credentials
If the Administrative UI credentials for the external administrator
store change, submit the new credentials to the Administrative
UI. Otherwise the administrators lose access.
If you installed the Administrative UI using the stand-alone option,
that is, with the embedded JBoss server, the following utilities are
LDAP: The smjndisetup utility to update the directory server user
To update the directory server host system name or port information,
use the Administrative UI to recreate the connection to the external
administrator store. The smjndisetup utility cannot update host or
Update Directory Server Credentials
Update directory manager credentials with the smjndisetup utility.
Note: The smjndisetup utility can only update connection details
that were configured using the Administrative UI. You cannot use the
smjndisetup utility to create the connection credentials. Follow
Log in to the Administrative UI host system.
Navigate to administrative_ui_home\CA\siteminder\adminui\bin.
administrative_ui_home specifies the Administrative UI installation
Run the following command:
Do one of the following tasks:
Type the new directory user and press Enter.
Press Enter to accept the default user name.
Type the new password and press Enter.
Type y and press Enter.
The utility restarts the Administrative UI service. The utility also
updates the new directory connection details.
