Modifying the administrator username and password used by web services

To comply by the security standards for your application after installation, you should perform the steps in this topic on a periodic basis.

The default username and password is admin/admin. But you must change the user name and password on a regular basis.


First, make all changes to the backup of the Tomcat layout in <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/bmcuddi/tomcat file. Then, copy the files to the running Tomcat instance.


  • Do not change the following items when working with these files:
    • The bmc.juddi.auth.localuser.user property in the <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/bmcuddi/tomcat/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes/ file.
    • The juddi.root.publisher property in the <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/bmcuddi/tomcat/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes/ file.
  • Do not rename or modify any of the files under <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/bmcuddi/tomcat/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes/juddi_custom_install_data.

To change the administrator's password

  1. In a command-line interface (CLI), go to <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/wsregistryapi/scripts.
  2. Start the password utility:
    1. For Microsoft Windows, enter encryptpswd.cmd
    2. For UNIX/Linux, enter ./encryptpswd
  3. Type in the new password when prompted.
  4. The encrypted password is returned.
  5. In the <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/bmcuddi/tomcat/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes/ file, assign the bmc.juddi.auth.localuser.passwd property its value, which is the encrypted password.
  6. Stop the Tomcat server that hosts BMC CMDB UDDI Registry Server.
  7. To overwrite the existing file, copy the <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/bmcuddi/tomcat/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes/ file to the TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes directory. 
  8. Start the Tomcat server.

To change the administrator's username

  1. In a text editor, open the file in <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/bmcuddi/tomcat/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes/.
  2. For the bmc.juddi.auth.localuser.alias property, specify the new user name for the root user.
    By default, it is unassigned, which means that the server uses the default value of local user name assigned to the property.
  3. Stop the Tomcat 6 server that hosts BMC CMDB UDDI Registry Server.
  4. To overwrite the existing file, copy the <ATRIUMCORE_HOME>/wsc/bmcuddi/tomcat/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes/ file to the TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/uddi/WEB-INF/classes directory .
  5. Start the Tomcat server.
