19.2 Setting the sadmin Password on Linux

You can use either the DHost remote management page or the ndsconfig utility.

DHost remote management page

Use the DHost remote manager page (accessible through the /dhost URL or from the root page) to set the sadmin password. NetIQ eDirectory server must be running on the eDirectory server in order for you to set or change the sadmin password.

  1. Open a Web browser.

  2. In the address (URL) field, enter the following:

    http://server.name:port/dhost

    for example:

    http://MyServer:80/dhost
    

    You can also use the server IP address to access the DHost iConsole. For example:

    http://137.65.135.150:80/dhost
    
  3. Specify a username, context, and password.

  4. Click HTTP Server, then specify an sadmin password.

  5. Verify the password you just specified, then click Submit.

ndsconfig

Use the ndsconfig utility to set the sadmin password. ndsd must be running on the eDirectory server in order for you to set or change the sadmin password.

Enter the following at the server console

ndsconfig set http.server.sadmin-pwd=password

where password is the new sadmin password.

For more information on using the ndsconfig utility, see ndsconfig Utility Parameters in the NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 SP8 Installation Guide.
