Hi Guys,

Having a problem logging into fmcautil as this is an old box and we are not sure of the password. When try logging into the admin utility it is not moving foward due to the invalid password.

Is there a way, to reset the password somewhere else if we are not able to login to the administration utility to change the password?

Hi,

it's all about updating the system administrators password in the MQWF DB.
The MQWF staff API provides methods to update users in the DB - see the Programming Guide.
A simpler method might be to use the MQWF Buildtime to update the administrator user. Export the resulting FDL and import it into the MQWF runtime DB.
It might also work to just edit a small FDL that contains such a user definition (without using the Buildtime) and directly import it into the runtime DB.

The FDL needs to contain something like this:
Code:

PERSON 'ADMIN'
  PASSWORD 'password'
  GROUP 'FMCGRP'
  SYSTEM 'FMCSYS'
  LEVEL 0
  RELATED_ROLE 'System administrator'
  AUTHORIZED_FOR AUTHORIZATION
  AUTHORIZED_FOR PROCESS_MODELING
  AUTHORIZED_FOR STAFF
  AUTHORIZED_FOR OPERATION
  AUTHORIZED_FOR TOPOLOGY
  AUTHORIZED_FOR PROCESS_CATEGORY ALL AS_ADMINISTRATOR
  AUTHORIZED_FOR WORKITEMS_OF ALL
  IS_NOT_ABSENT
  DO NOT RESET_ABSENT
END 'ADMIN'

You may want to check your existing FDLs for a reference of the proper system/group name and user name.
