A logon alias allows users to log on to RSA Authentication Manager with a user group ID, instead of their User IDs. By default, the maximum length of the logon alias is 48 characters, but a User ID can be longer. You can increase the maximum length of the logon alias to 100 characters.
Before you begin
The following credentials are required:
- The rsaadmin password for the primary instance
- Operations Console administrator
- Log on to the appliance with the User ID rsaadmin and the operating system password that you defined during Quick Setup.
- On a hardware appliance, an Amazon Web Services appliance, or an Azure appliance, log on to the appliance using an SSH client.
- On a virtual appliance, log on to the appliance using an SSH client, the VMware vSphere client, the Hyper-V System Center Virtual Machine Manager Console, or the Hyper-V Manager.
To log on to the appliance operating system using Secure Shell (SSH), you must enable SSH.
For instructions, see Enable Secure Shell on the Appliance.
- Change directories to /opt/rsa/am/utils. Type:
and press ENTER.
./rsautil store -a update_config auth_manager.principalmgt.max_aliasname_length 100 GLOBAL 501
where 100 is the new maximum length of the logon alias.
- Press ENTER. You are prompted for the required options.
- When prompted, enter your Operations Console administrator User ID, and press ENTER.
- When prompted, enter your Operations Console administrator password, and press ENTER.
The maximum length of the logon alias is increased.
Note: Although it is possible to enter the Operations Console administrator password on the command line, this creates a potential security vulnerability. RSA recommends that you enter passwords only when the utility presents a prompt.
- Close the SSH client. Type exit and press ENTER.
