Question:

 

We have to reset the "Monitor ID",

What is the best method to retrieve this password ?

 

Environment:
WCC 11.4 on LINUX/UNIX
Answer:

 

We can export the application using the following syntax: 

wcc_config -u commander_username -p password -x file_name --plainpwd -c CONFIG 

This will export the configuration for WCC with plain text passwords. 

You can then modify the file_name, insert_ae_server to be modify_ae_server and change 

the password in the file for that instance using the monitor_password parameter. 

Once that is complete you can re-import the configuration using the following command: 

wcc_config -u commander_username -p password -i file_name -c CONFIG
