Use this procedure to choose either six or eight digits as the character length for the On-Demand Authentication (ODA) tokencodes generated by RSA Authentication Manager. By default, on-demand tokencodes are eight characters long.

Procedure 

  1. Log on to the appliance with the user name rsaadmin and the operating system password.

  2. Change directories:

    cd /opt/rsa/am/util

  3. To set the character length, type:

    ./rsautil store -a add_config auth_manager.oda.token_code_length <X> global 503

    where <X> is either 6 or 8, depending on the character length you want to set.

    To change the character length after setting it for the first time, type:

    ./rsautil store -a update_config auth_manager.oda.token_code_length <X> global 503

    where <X> is either 6 or 8, depending on the character length you want to set.

  4. Restart all Authentication Manager Services on the primary instance and any replica instances. Type:

    cd /opt/rsa/am/server

    ./rsaserv restart all
