On occasion it may be necessary to manually ‘Reset’ or reconfigure the CA Siteminder Admin UI. This can be the case when you’ve overwritten an existing Policy Store to which the Policy Server which the WAMUI is configured to connect to has been overwritten by the import of a policy store from another environment. This may also be necessary when pointing an existing WAMUI at a new environment. This can frequently be presented as a problem connecting to the Policy Server with the WAMUI where previously it had worked without any problems.
Frequently previous attempts to re-run XPSRegClient and even smreg –su to reset the Siteminder password have not resolved connection issues with the WAMUI.
This document goes through the detailed steps on how to rest an existing WAMUI. However it primarily focuses on the steps when the WAMUI is implemented on the default embedded JBoss application server.
