WAS V6.1 distinguishes between the user identities for administrators who manage the environment and server identities for authenticating server to server communications. In most cases, server identities are automatically generated and are not stored in a repository.

However, if we are adding a V5.0.x or 6.0.x node to a V 6.1 cell, verify the V5.x or V 6.0.x server identity and password are defined in the repository for this cell. Enter the server user identity and password on this panel.

Primary administrative user name

Name of a user with administrative privileges that is defined in the local operating system.

The user name is used to log on to the admin console when administrative security is enabled. V6.1 requires an admin user that is distinct from the server user identity so that admin actions can be audited.

In WAS, Vs 5.x and 6.0.x, a single user identity is required for both admin access and internal process communication. When migrating to V6.1, this identity is used as the server user identity. specify another user for the admin user identity.

Automatically generated server identity

Enables the appserver to generate the server identity, which is recommended for environments that contain only V6.1 or later nodes. Automatically generated server identities are not stored in a user repository.

We can change this server identity on the Authentication mechanisms and expiration panel. To access the Authentication mechanisms and expiration panel, click...
