After user installs CRS, the administrator login fails with the default password ciscocisco

Core Issue

After installing Cisco Customer Response Solutions (CRS), the user cannot log in to the Cisco Customer Response Application (CRA) administration page, located at http://servername/AppAdmin. This is the case even when the user logs in as Administrator/ciscocisco, which is documented in the Accessing the CRA Administration Web Interface section of Installing Cisco CRA 3.0.


The AppAdmin uses the user from Cisco CallManager, which you specify during installation. The username is usually Administrator, but some users have used CRSAdmin. Reset the users password on the Cisco CallManager.

If that does not resolve the issue, perform these steps:

  5. Log in with Administrator, password: ciscocisco. You can run through the Directory Configuration again to reconfigure the LDAP info. Make sure to select the current profile name that you are using.    

    This change allows you to log in as Administrator/ciscocisco.
