During the installation of the WCC product, we chose the default user "wcc" with the "wcc" group. 

We would like to modify this user and his group by another. 

Can we do this simply or do we have to uninstall and reinstall WCC?


Release : 11.4

Component : CA Workload Automation AE (AutoSys)


It is recommended to perform an uninstallation of WCC and run the installation again and provide correct 'user' and 'group'.

Uninstallation of WCC doesn't touch the WCC DB so during re-installation the same WCC DB can be used again.
