Answered Question

Hello, is there any way to reset the admin password for the OAMP console? Pretty sure this is somewhere in Tomcat, but where?

You can follow these steps to reset the password for default OAMP user account 'administrator'. On OPS Console machine:

1. Stop 'Cisco CVP OPSConsoleServer' windows service.

2. Run the script '%CVP_HOME%\bin\mgr-init.bat -install ', where is the new password.

3. Start 'Cisco CVP OPSConsoleServer' windows service.


NOTE: Please use this procedure only if the old password is lost or forgotten for 'administrator'. To reset all other user passwords, one can logon using administrator account and reset or change all other user passwords.

Thanks very much. This fixed my problem. The problem cause is the crazy password policy. It forces you to use an extremly long password, you don't use normaly, so you forget. This policy rather causes more trouble than good.

Thanks once more.
