Sun OpenSSO Enterprise Policy Agent 3.0 Guide for Sun Java System Web Server 7.0

Changing the Password for an Agent Profile (Optional)

After you install the agent, you can change the agent profile password, if required for your deployment.

ProcedureTo Change the Password for an Agent Profile

  1. On the OpenSSO Enterprise server:

    1. Login into the Administration Console as amAdmin.

    2. Click Access Control, realm-name, Agents, Web, and then the name of the agent you want to configure.

      The Console displays the Edit page for the agent profile.

    3. Enter and confirm the new unencrypted password.

    4. Click Save.

  2. On the server where the Web Server 7.0 agent is installed:

    1. In the agent profile password file, replace the old password with the new unencrypted password.

    2. Change to the PolicyAgent-base/bin directory.

    3. Encrypt the new password using the agentadmin program. For example:

      #./agentadmin --encrypt Agent_002 /tmp/ws7agentpw

      Agent_002 is the agent instance whose password you want to encrypt.

      passwd is the password file in the /tmp directory.

      The agentadmin program returns the new encrypted password. For example:

      The encrypted value is: /54GwN432q+MEnfh/AHLMA==

    4. In the agent-instance/config/ file, set the following property to the new encrypted password from the previous step. For example:

    5. Restart the Web Server 7.0 instance that is being protected by the policy agent.
