Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.2 Troubleshooting Guide

ProcedureTo remove the user name and password completely

  1. Stop the server, if it is currently running.

  2. Change to the appropriate WEB-INF directory; for example:

  3. Comment out the entire <security-constraint\> element in the web.xml file.

    Do not delete the element, as you will be reenabling it later. This action disables security for command-line operations.

    Note –

    The commands will still expect a value for --username (or -u) and --password (or -w). But these can be dummy values, since the server side does not impose any security.

  4. Start the server.

    At this point, the server does not have command-line security.

  5. Run the following command:

    asadmin create-file-user --user <dummy\> --password <dummy\>
     --userpassword <new_secret\> --groups asadmin <new_user_id\>

    This command creates the following new entry:

  6. Uncomment the <security-constraint\> element in web.xml file.

  7. Restart the server for the new user name-password to take effect.

    Note –

    When the server is started, any remote command-line operations will need new_user_id and new_secret as user name and password.
