Changing administrator password on AEM Forms JEE
February 2, 2016 1 Comment
Ok, so this isn’t really a bug but it was damn annoying to figure out.
So we had a development server that was publicly available, so the first thing you do is change the default administrator password (right?).
Then I start seeing messages from JBoss server.log:
19:14:56,218 WARN [com.adobe.idp.um.businesslogic.authentication.AuthenticationManagerBean] (Thread-166) Authentication failed for user [admin] (Scheme - Username/Password) Reason: Username or password is incorrect . Refer to debug level logs for category com.adobe.idp.um.businesslogic.authentication for further details
What? Where is that coming from?
Anyway, to cut a long story short, it turns out if you want to change the default administrator password on AEM Forms JEE 6.X, you need to update the OSGi configuration for the Adobe LiveCycle Client SDK Configuration or it will lock out your administrator account!
The URL to get to it directly is: http://localhost:8080/lc/system/console/configMgr/com.adobe.livecycle.dsc.clientsdk.internal.DSCConfigService
Remember that if you have any Author or Publish instances pointing to your Processing server, they will need to be updated too or the same thing will happen.
