WebSphere Security: Switch off username/password prompt while shutting down services

Posted By Sagar Patil

In previous releases of WebSphere Application Server, when global security was enabled, both administrative and application security were enabled. In WebSphere Application Server V6.1, the concept of global security is split into administrative security and application security, of which each component can be enabled separately. Application security provides application isolation and requirements for authenticating users for the applications in your environment.

When global security is enabled, the application has to provide the right user name and password to be able to run the scripts. It could be achived by 2 ways , using 1)Remote Method Invocation (RMI) connector , or 2) a SOAP connector:

The sas.client.props (RMI) and the soap.client.props (SOAP) files are located in $PROFILE_ROOT/properties directory for each WebSphere Application Server profile:

1) Using RMI method with wsadmin

Amend following properties in sas.client.props file :

com.ibm.CORBA.loginSource=properties¬† — change from Prompt (Default)
com.ibm.CORBA.loginUserid=wsadmin
com.ibm.CORBA.loginPassword=wsadmin1234

wsadmin -conntype RMI -port 2809

2) Using SOAP Connector method

was61@properties]$ /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Profile01/Node/bin/stopServer.sh  server_member1
ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Profile01/Node/logs/server_member1/stopServer.log
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the Node profile
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: server_member1
Realm/Cell Name: <default>
Username: wsadmin
Password:

To switch off username /password prompt while shutting down WAS services , edit $WAS_HOME/node/properties/soap.client.props

vi soap.client.props
com.ibm.SOAP.loginUserid=wsadmin
com.ibm.SOAP.loginPassword=wsadmin1234

Here is the result

[was61@properties]$ /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Profile01/Node/bin/stopServer.sh server_member1
ADMU0116I: Tool information is being logged in file
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Profile01/Node/logs/server_member1/stopServer.log
ADMU0128I: Starting tool with the Node profile
ADMU3100I: Reading configuration for server: server_member1
ADMU3201I: Server stop request issued. Waiting for stop status.
ADMU4000I: Server server_member1 stop completed.

To switch off password prompt while shutting down dmgr you will need soap.client.props modified at $WAS_HOME/Dmgr/properties/
