How to change the password for the Account Management 3.0 master user


Novell Account Management 3.0


Change the password in eDirectory

Open the ASAMCore.conf file on the Manager server and edit ASAMPassword by replacing the whole string (including the enc:). For example if you changed the password to ‘novell’ it would be ‘ASAMPASSWORD "novell"’

Change the ASAMCore.conf files on all the systems running Core Service components.

If you want to re-encrypt the password you must first re-run the install for the Manger. Then you must copy the new encrypted password (ASAMPassword) and encryption key (StorageKey) from the Managers ASAMCore.conf file to the ASAMCore.conf files on the other systems running Core Services.
