When you install the
Identity Manager
Extensions to the Policy Server, supply the password for the CA SSO administrator account that
Identity Manager
uses to communicate with the Policy Server.
You can change the password; however, the password must be encrypted. To encrypt a password, use the password tool which is provided with
Identity Manager
.
Note:
Ensure that the JAVA_HOME variable is defined for your environment before you change the CA SSO password.
Follow these steps:
  1. Encrypt the password as follows:
    1. From the command line, navigate to
      admin_tools
      \PasswordTool, where
      admin_tools
      is the installed location of the Administrative Tools, as in the following examples:
      • Windows:
        C:\Program Files\CA\Identity Manager\IAM Suite\Identity Manager\tools\PasswordTool
      • UNIX:
        /opt/CA/IdentityManager/IAM_Suite/Identity_Manager/tools/PasswordTool
    2. Type the following command:
      pwdtools
      new_password
      In this command,
      new_password
      is the password to encrypt.
      Note:
      For information about options for the pwdtools utility, enter the following command:
      pwdtools help
    3. Copy the encrypted password.
  2. Complete the relevant step as follows:

      2. Add the encrypted password as the value of the Password property.
    • If

        from the following location:
        <jboss_home>\
        standalone\deployments\iam_im.ear\policyserver_rar\META-INF
      2. Add the encrypted password as the value of the
        Password
        config-property.
    • If
      Identity Manager
      is running on a WebSphere application server, complete the following tasks:
      1. In the WebSphere console, open
        ra.xml
        .
      2. Add the encrypted password as the value of the Password config-property.
