To change the password of the xelsysadm user in IBM WebSphere Application Server 6.1.x:

  1. Login to the WebSphere Admin Console and the Oracle Identity Manager Administrative and User Console in two different browser windows. For a clustered installation of Oracle Identity Manager, make sure that all the node agents in XL_CELL are started, including the XL_MODEL_NODE.
  2. Change the password for xelsysadm in the Administrative and USer Console. To do so:
    1. Login to Administrative and User Console as xelsysadm.
    2. Click My Account, and then click Change Password.
    3. Enter old and new passwords, and then click OK to change the password.

      ****For a clustered installation of Oracle Identity Manager, shut down the XL_JMS_CLUSTER and XL_CLUSTER clusters.

  3. Change the password in the WebSphere Admin Console for XLJMSLogin. To do so:

    *****This step is not required if you are using WebSphere MQ for JMS messaging. Default installations of Oracle Identity Manager used WebSphere default JMS implementation.

    1. In the WebSphere Admin Console, click Security, Secure Administration, Applications and Infrastructure.
    2. On the right pane, click Java Authentication and Authorization Service, J2C Authentication Data, XLJMSLogin.
    3. Enter the new password and click OK.

    1. In the WebSphere Admin Console, navigate to Security, Secure Administration, Applications and infrastructure, and Standalone Custom Registry.
    2. Enter the new password.
    3. Enter primary administrative user name as xelsysadm. The following warning message is displayed:

    3. Click Save to save the password to the main configuration.

      For a clustered installation of Oracle Identity Manager, click Preferences, and select Synchronize changes with Nodes before saving.

  6. Change the soap-client.properties. To do so, in the WebSphere installation, open the WAS_HOME/PROFILE_NAME/properties/soap.client.props file, and enter the new password for the com.ibm.SOAP.loginPassword property.

    For a clustered installation of Oracle Identity Manager, perform this step for WebSphere installations and profiles on all the nodes that are involved in XL_CELL.

  7. Restart WebSphere Application Server.

    For a clustered installation of Oracle Identity Manager, restart Deployment Manager and Node Manager on all the nodes including XL_MODEL_NODE. Do not start WebSphere Application Servers in XL_CLUSTER and XL_JMS_CLUSTER.

  8. Run the following utility to redeploy Oracle Identity Manager:
    • For UNIX

      OIM_HOME/setup/patch_websphere.sh XELSYSADM_PASSWORD OIM_DB_PASSWORD

    • For Microsoft Windows:

      OIM_HOME/setup/patch_websphere.cmd XELSYSADM_PASSWORD OIM_DB_PASSWORD

    ***Provide the new password for xelsysadm to run the patch.

  9. Restart WebSphere Application Server.

    For a clustered installation of Oracle Application Server, you can shutdown Node Manager on XL_MODEL_NODE. Start WebSphere Application Server in the XL_CLUSTER andXL_JMS_CLUSTER clusters.

  10. Logout of the WebSphere Admin Console and relogin.
