CA Output Management Web Viewer

Issue/Introduction

CA Web Viewer required a master mainframe account (ADMINID) when installing. We need to change that account. How is this done?
Tomorrow is my last day. The account must be changed by then.

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : CA OUTPUT MANAGEMENT WEB VIEWER FOR ALL PLATFORMS

Resolution

The Web Viewer configtool should be used to change the ADMINID setting, Default Administrator's Mainframe ID. The change may be verified by running the configtool again, or by viewing the WVProfile.properties file, ADMINISTRATION.DefaultAdminID.

Additional Information

Where changing the 12.1 Web Viewer ADMINID is concerned, you're best off doing it from the configtool. You can make the change by editing the Web Viewer WVProfile.properties file, but it's not recommended. Instead, start the configtool and choose "1" for system level external configuration, then Config Option "4" ADMINID settings. That's where you may change the Default Administrator's Mainframe ID. After you make and save the change, you'll note it says you need to recycle. You'll want to do this when the Web Viewer is not in use. You also want to make sure that the first user to sign in after the recycle is the ID you just reset as the ADMINID.
