RSA Product/Service Type:  Authentication Manager
RSA Version/Condition:  7.1, 3.0
IssueOperations Console administrators cannot login to the Authentication Manager 7.1 Operations Console.
  • The password for a Security Console administrator may have been changed, possibly after it expired.  This password change for the Security Console admin does not change the Operations Console password, even if the username happens to be the same. The Security Console and Operations Console use different databases for administrative users.   
  • The Operations Console password may have expired.
  • The machine fingerprint changed.
  • You must have a valid Security Console super admin username and password, to use the following utility that will manage Operations Console administrators.
  • The super admin account must be in the internal database, not in an external identity source, such as LDAP or SunOne.
  • This account and password must not be expired. 
  • Verify this user can log onto the Security Console before performing the next steps.

See "Using the Manage Operations Console Administrators Utility" on page 310 in the RSA Authentication Manager 7.1 Administrator's Guide.
Note:  If Authentication Manager 7.1 is installed on a Unix server or these commands are run on the RSA SecurID Appliance 3.0, prepend ./ to the commands below.
