Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator's Guide

ProcedureTo change or create a user's password

  1. Access the Administration Server and choose Users and Groups tab.

  2. Display the user entry as described in Finding User Information.

  3. Make the desired changes.

    For more information, see the Manage Users page in the online help.


    Note –

    You can change the Administration Server user from root to another user on the operating system to enable multiple users (belonging to the group) to edit/manage the configuration files. However, note that while on UNIX/Linux platforms, the installer can give “rw” permissions to a group for the configuration files, on Windows platforms, the user must belong to the “Administrators” group.


    For LDAP databases, you can also disable the user’s password by clicking the Disable Password button. Doing this prevents the user from logging into a server without deleting the user’s directory entry. You can allow access for the user again by using the Password Management Form to enter a new password.
