    I am trying to change the Store Admin user password that I've used when installing Identity Minder.  Can I do it from Web Interface?

    You can change your Admin password on CA Directory through JXplorer. Login to your User Store and from there you can reset the password.

     

    This is not recommended as there are many dependencies that rely on this password. Is this a fresh install of identity manager?

     

    Thanks,

    Thank you Andrew for the answer.  It is necessary to change these passwords. It is not a fresh install.  Although we migrate environment during an upgrade a few months ago.  Can you give me more details on how I can do it through JXplorer?  After that I need to update passwords in the IM Corporate Directory xml and in Dir Prov xml files?

    Hello Xenia,

     

    Let me look further into this to ensure all the dependencies are covered.

     

    Thanks,

    Hi.

     

    About the Site Minder admin:

    You need to ensure your SM administrator has full administrative rights. Then you shall use Site Minder itself to change his password, then log back into SM from their WAM UI and confirm the new password is working. Then, to effect that in Identity Manager you shall: Stop all your app servers that use this siteminder administrator in their ra.xml, use the Password Tool to encrypt the new password of that administrator and paste it back to the ra.xml in all app servers, then start them back up and confirm the connection is made in IDM startup step 2.

     

    About the IDM store admin:

    I guess you refer to the LDAP administrator account of the corp user store as specified in the directory xml. If this is what you are asking for then you shall use an LDAP Browser to change that password and log into that directory server with the new password to confirm it's correct. Then, you shall export the dir xml and encrypt the new password (using IDM password tool) and update that dir xml back using the /iam/immanage.

     

     

    About the etaadmin:

    I don't know, hopefully someone else will answer that.

     

     

    Thanks,

    For the IM User Directory you would want to export the XML, use the pwdtools script to generate a new encrypted password, update the XML, and import the XML back in before you update the password in the actual userstore (i.e. LDAP store or DB store). If you were to update the actual userstore first then you would not be able to export/import via the IM Management Console.
