RSA Version/Condition: 8.x
IssueThis article explains how to change On-Demand Tokencode length from command line interface on RSA Authentication Manager 8.x
Resolution
  1. Launch an SSH client, such as PuTTY.
  2. Login to the primary Authentication Manager server as rsaadmin and enter the operating system password.

Note that during Quick Setup another user name may have been selected. Use that user name to login.



  1. Navigate to utils:


cd /opt/rsa/am/utils


  1. Type the following command and when prompted, enter the OC Administrator username and password:


./rsautil store -a add_config auth_manager.oda.token_code_length 6 global 503


  1. Navigate to server:


cd ../server


  1. Restart all RSA Authentication Manager services.


./rsaserv restart all
Notes
  • The length can be specified as any integer value but only 6 and 8 are going to be considered.
  • All others are going to be ignored and Authentication Manager will default to 8.
  • This update should be applied on Authentication Manager 8.1 SP1 P13 or later.
  • If you did the above before patch 13 the config value will not take place, as there is new logic that we put in place which is part of patch 13 (or later) and is doing the actual work based on the config value.
