Recently, I forgot the password and userID of my WAS Admin Console and had a tought time reseting it. But, All my readers will not bear the pain that i went through. Here, I list you the steps involved in reseting the password/username of Websphere Application Server.


1). Login to the command line of windows and point to the WAS Installation directory.

2). Run wsadmin.bat from the installation directory, with following arguments

                 -conntype none -c securityoff

[wsadmin.bat -conntype none -c securityoff]

3). Restart the server.

These are the steps which disable the security in the WAS Admin Console.
