How to manually change the Authentication Type in Unified Self-Service?

You can manually change the Security Authentication Type of Unified Self Service if a USS administrator is unable to access the USS Control Panel through the Admin interface.  If the Authentication Type was set to 'UserId' while installing USS, and in CA EEM, if the User Authentication Filter in LDAP attribute Mapping was set to use: sAMAccountName, users are unable to login to USS User/Admin interface. The Authentication Type in USS should be changed to 'screenName' manually so that users can login.
