  • 1.  How to change CA Service Management Admin credentials?

    Posted 06-08-2017 11:24 AM

    Hi guys,

     

    Is there a way to change CA Service Management Administration credentials?

     

    This is my situation:

    We've installed CA SM using CA EEM internal user store successfully. Then, within all products and integrations working, we've pointed CA EEM to a external user store (Windows Active Directory trougth LDAP); We've defined successfully all products administrators to a LDAP account (CA SDM, CA SC, CCA, USS and PAM), but the CA Service Management Admin still trying to use CASMAdmin account. This account does not exists in external user store.

     

    Any tips will be appreciated!

     

    Best regards,

     

    Eduardo

    Hi Eduadro, 

     

    Did you try this:

     

    Implementation Guide Release 12.8.00 

     

    Follow these steps:

    1. Open the CA Service Catalog command prompt by clicking Start, Programs, CA, Service Catalog, Service Catalog Command Prompt.
    2. Enter the following command at the CA Service Catalog command prompt:
      ant add-spadmin-user

    Hi, diegolimabsb! Tks for you reply.

     

    For sure, we set successfully the catalog administrator using a LDAP account. Our problem is only for CA Service Management Admin. The CA Service Management Administration service supports many administrative tasks, and the administrative tasks is not working.

     

    Regards,

    Good Morning Eduardo.
     
    Please check the below CA Service Management 14.1 Wiki Page:
    https://docops.ca.com/ca-service-management/14-1/en/implementing/implementing-ca-service-management-14-1/step-4-install-or-upgrade/upgrade-to-ca-service-management
     
    On which there is a note, reading:
    Note:
    If you are planning to upgrade a product that was integrated and configured with Active Directory in an earlier release,
    before upgrading to CA Service Management 14.1,
    ensure to create the CasmAdmin user and OpenSpaceAdminGroup.
    Associate the CasmAdmin to the OpenSpaceAdminGroup in the Active Directory.
     
    Please (double) check this has been done on your environment too?
    Especially where you mentioned: "This account does not exists in external user store."
     
    Thanks and kind regards, Louis van Amelsfort.

    Hi Louis! This is exactly the confirmation I was looking for.

     

    Just for context, we are a MSP, offering CA SM multi-tetant in SaaS model to the market - using shared environments. Our solution are connected to several client's LDAP (not only Microsoft Active Directory by the way), providing data synchronization for contacts and authentication over EEM.

     

    I will work a little more on that, and figure out how we can go forward.

     

    Tks a lot and best regards,

     

    Eduardo

    Hi AcoCoa! Hou you doing?

     

    We've created casmadmin user in Active Directory, created an application group (Administradores) in EEM and related casmadmin user to this group. In portal-ext.properties file, we set the parameter eem.application.admin.group=Administradores. After restart USS services, we are able to login to USS (portal and control panel) with no problems.

     

    The original problem with Administrative Tasks was solved as well. I just had to set the casmadmin's domain user password equal to casmadmin EEM user created during install.

     

    Fell free to contact me if you need any help.

     

    Regards,

     

    Eduardo

    Hello,

    If you want to change the password of the CASMADMIN user, you simply have to put EEM in "Internal" mode.

     

    Modify the CASMADMIN password with EEM and toggles EEM to "External" mode again.

     

    Once in "External" mode, without CASMADMIN being created in the external LDAP,
    it will not be possible for you to authenticate with the user.
