CA Process Automation was recently installed and pointed out to an EEM server which had another ITPAM release installed.

This previous application was removed from EEM prior to installing ITPAM, and had another user (ADMUSER) set as the ITPAM administrator.

Now, customer is unable to login to ITPAM as pamadmin or as admuser.


As the original ITPAM registered application was removed from EEM, the ITPAM permissions usually set to the administrator (pamadmin or any other user) were removed.

With this, the user is unable to login to ITPAM.


CA Process Automation r4.2 SP1EEM r12.51EEM configured to AD


In order to resolve this, proceed as follows:

1. Logon to EEM in the Process Automation application as EiamAdmin:
