1.2 Changing the Vibe Administrator User ID or Password

When you first install OpenText Vibe, the Vibe administrator user name is admin and the password is admin. When you first log in to the Vibe site as the administrator, you should change the administrator password from the default password to a secure password of your own choosing.

1.2.1 Changing the Administrator Password

You can change your password to a new password at any time:

  1. In your web browser, specify one of the following URLs, depending on whether you are using a secure SSL connection:


    Replace vibe_hostname with the hostname or fully qualified domain name of the Vibe server that you have set up in DNS. If you configured the HTTP ports correctly during installation, you do not need to include the port number in the Vibe URL.

  2. (Conditional) If this is your first time accessing the site, log in using admin as the login name and admin as the password.

    The Change Password dialog box is automatically displayed when you first log in to the Vibe site.

  3. (Conditional) If this is not your first time accessing the site, log in using the administrator user name and password, then change your password as described in Changing Your Password in the OpenText Vibe 4.0.8 User Guide.

1.2.2 Changing the Administrator User ID and Other Profile Information

You might want to change the administrator User ID in addition to other information on the administrator’s user profile.

  • User ID: As a security precaution, it might make sense to change the administrator’s user ID from the default admin. The administrator user ID is used only when logging in to the Vibe system.

    Changing the administrator user ID requires that you restart each Vibe appliance in the Vibe system in order for the change to take effect.

  • First Name and Last Name: Providing a first and last name for the administrator changes the name that appears in the upper-right corner of each Vibe page, as well as the name that appears in the administration console under Administrators.

To change the Vibe administrator user ID, as well as other profile information, follow the steps in Modifying Your Profile in the OpenText Vibe 4.0.8 User Guide.
