    How to reset Tibco default user ID and pwd?

    Volker Scheithauer

      Hi Team,


      I might have changed the default password during install, and can't remeber it. How can I reset the default user / pwd of Tibco Active Matrix?

          If the EMS admin password has been lost, it is easy to recover. In EMS  all local users and their passwords stored in the users.conf file by default. You can find correct file in the tibemsd.conf:
          users                   =  "C:/tibco/tibco/cfgmgmt/ems/data/users.conf"


          In the users.conf find admin user:
          and remove encrypted password between colons:

          Then restart EMS daemon. Connect to your EMS using EMS Administration  Tool and login as admin without password:
          > connect
          Login name (admin):
          Connected to: tcp://localhost:7222

          Then set a new password for admin:
          tcp://localhost:7222> set password admin 123
          Password of user 'admin' has been modified

          If you manage EMS in the TIBCO Administrator, then you need to change  EMS admin password there. Start TIBCO DomainUtility,  select “TIBCO EMS Plugin”, “Update TIBCO EMS Server”, press “Next”.  Select domain and enter domain (not EMS!) admin user name and password.  Select EMS server to update, and change EMS password there, test  connection on the next screen and press “Next” to save new  configuration.

            Thanks for the quick response. The users.conf contains no password for admin, it looks like this: admin::Administrator.

            We have Tibco installed on a ITSM / CMDB machine to host the CMDB WS.


            If I try to login with admin and no password, I'm getting an error message.


            Selecting this link from the menu:

            D:\Program Files\BMC Software\AtriumCore\wsc\tibco\amxadministrator\data\bootstrap.html


            opens the explorer and shows that I have Atrium WS available. If I click on the link, I get the logon page for Tibco ActiveMatrix.


            Any suggestions on how to fix it?



            The login for EMS is working:
