CA EEM allows changing the password for EiamAdmin user, if the password is lost or needs to be changed. How do I perform the reset?

 

Important Note: This will not work for EEM 12.x.

Answer:

 Resetting the EiamAdmin password:

 1. In the command prompt, goto the iTechnology folder and run the safex command.
safex.exe -munge <newpassword>
The password is displayed in encrypted format.

 2. Stop the iGateway service.
               Windows
net stop igateway


               Linux and UNIX
$IGW_LOC/S99igateway stop

 3. Open the iPoz.conf file and add the encrypted password generated in step 1 to the following tag:
<EiamAdminPassword><Newpassword></EiamAdminPassword>

Save the iPoz.conf file.

4. Start the iGateway service.
            Windows
net start igateway


             Linux and UNIX
$IGW_LOC/S99igateway start

 

5. Use the new password to login as the EiamAdmin user.
