Create the TAM security administrative user
Before you beginEnabling security requires the creation of a WAS administrative user. Use the Tivoli Access Manager command-line pdadmin utility (available on the policy server host box) to create the Tivoli Access Manager administrative user for WebSphere Application Server. To use the pdadmin utility:
- From a command line, start the pdadmin utility as the Tivoli Access Manager administrative user, sec_master:
pdadmin -a sec_master -p sec_master_password
- Create a WAS security user. For example, the following instructions create a new user, wasadmin. The command is entered as one continuous line:
pdadmin> user create wasadmin cn=wasadmin,o=organization, c=country wasadmin wasadmin myPassword
Substitute values for organization and country that are valid for your LDAP user registry.
- Enable the account for the WAS security administrative user by issuing the following command:
pdadmin> user modify wasadmin account-valid yes
What to do nextConfigure the Java Authorization Contract for Container (JACC) provider for Tivoli Access Manager - Tivoli Access Manager JACC provider configuration.
