I've just did the fresh install of CiscoWorks LMS25 yesterday on Sol9 and then I was able to login to CiscoWorks using admin login credential. This morning when I installed the patch LSM25_dec2005 and now when I try to login it doesn't like the admin pasword anymore. when I look at the install logs and line where it says

Do you want to see the passwords that were entered/randomly generated and I see the correct password there. but I still get the errr "Authentication failed. Please try again" I'm not using any other login methon on CiscoWorks.

An old tip posted here before:

find the file

CSCOpx\lib\classpath\com\cisco\nm\cmf\servlet\cwpass (Windows)


/opt/CSCOpx/lib/classpath/com/cisco/nm/cmf/servlet/cwpass (Solaris)

if you replace your admin line with this:


Your admin password will be cisco.

Thanks for you support, I did the change and it works fine. At the end the PWD is "admin" and not 'cisco'


Best regards,

Once you log in as admin with the recovered password go to Common Services - Server - Security - Local User Setup

Click on modify my profile in the main window and there you go
