CA PPM Default Password?

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  CA PPM Default Password?

    Posted 07-13-2018 08:33 PM

    I just installed CA PPM for my first time on a server.  I think I've done everything correctly, in CSA three services are started successfully, which includes CA PPM Application, CA PPM Background, and Database (on SQL Server).  I can even get to the login screen.  However, the admin password I used for setup isn't working to get in.  It looks like in CSA under the security properties for the server that it needs to be configured to use LDAP, yet I'm trying to get a POC working.  Don't have LDAP setup.  Isn't there a default password or some way around the LDAP?


    Any idea how I can log in?


    I found the following users in the DB table CMN_SEC_USERS, but obviously not sure what these hashes are...

    -99  ppm_invalid_user  uOKlIQvhjQY5DkehDm8EWN825FHlOsjjRg+jaQcvmlQ=
    1  admin  jGl25bVBBBW96Qi9Te4V37Fnqchz/Eu4qB9vKrRIqRg=
    7  scheduler  9hY0/ohJ30KpGjopjjLXfA==
    8  process_admin  9hY0/ohJ30KpGjopjjLXfA==
    9  monitor_admin  9hY0/ohJ30KpGjopjjLXfA==
    5000001  xc_admin  uOKlIQvhjQY5DkehDm8EWN825FHlOsjjRg+jaQcvmlQ=

    When you say the password you set up -. are you referring to the admin password to CSA that is set up during install.

    Looks like your system is accessible as you get the login screen.

    If you have not logged in to the system, the you have the defaults.

    Try admin admin

    However, the ID of the xc_admin looks like not OOTB user which can only have been created after install when logged in.

    Thanks, that worked.  xc_admin did come out of the box with 15.4.1.

    Yes I was referring to the CSA credentials.
