  2. Change port the server attribute to the SSL port which Access Manager is running.

  3. Change the type attribute to SSL.

    For example:

    <ServerGroup name="default" minConnPool="1" maxConnPool="10">
        <Server name="Server1" host="" port="636" type="SSL" />
        <User name="User1" type="proxy">
                     cn=puser,ou=DSAME Users,dc=iplanet,dc=com
     </User> ...

    ampassword only changes the password in Directory Server. You will have to manually change passwords in the ServerConfig.xml and all authentication templates for Access Manager.
