Changing the Password for the EMS Administration Account

The Sentinel EMS Administration account (used to access the Sentinel EMS Administration Console) is different from the Sentinel EMS Superuser account, even though both accounts have the user name admin. When you change the password for one of these accounts, the password for the other account is not affected. The default user name and password for the Sentinel EMS Administration Account is admin. This password may be different in your case if you specified a different password during installation or you have changed it later.

NOTE   It is highly recommended that you change the default password for the Sentinel EMS Administration account as soon as possible.

To change the EMS Administration Account password:

  1. Modify the password in the following file:

    %EMS_HOME%\EMSServer\webapps\emsConfig\WEB-INF\classes\configuration.xml

  2. Restart the EMS Service.
