Xue Xiang Cui (711137) | asked Nov 21 '08, 5:14 a.m.
I hoped to migrate Tomcat to WAS, after following the insturction to change the configuration, I got the following message in the user management view for my admin user, which caused there is no admin user in my RTC and can't do anything there. Does anyone have some ideas about this problem? Thanks.

You are using a directory service that is not writable. User roles cannot be modified.

When you migrated from Tomcat to WAS, did you also change your user
registry settings to LDAP? When you move your RTC user registry away
from the Tomcat user registry, the default ADMIN/ADMIN account is not
available. You would need to make sure that your new user registry has
a user in the JazzAdmin group, and you should log in with that user.

If you provide a little more detail about how you have reconfigured your
server, perhaps we can give some suggestions.

Thanks for the response. When I installed and ocnfigured RTC of Tomcat edition, I chose "Non-LDAP External Registry", I created an admin user "mattcui" and seemed "ADMIN" user was diabled accordingly. As you pointed out, after migration to WAS, seems it can't find that user registry, and only can login with "Guest", do you have some ideas of how to make it find the previous user registry or re-enable "ADMIN" user? Thanks for your help!

It sounds like the simplest solution is to continue to use Tomcat rather
than go to WAS. For small installations, using Tomcat is easier to
manage and configure than a WAS install, especially if you are trying to
no use a LDAP user registry. Is it possible to use Tomcat?

There is no way to re-enable ADMIN user? I used "Non-LDAP External Registry" for RTC of tomcat edtion, RTC of WAS edtion can't use this kind of user registry? Thanks. I hoped to change it to use IBM bluegroup LDAP, then anyone of company can login my RTC...

There is nothing magic about the 'ADMIN' user other than we pre-create
it in the Tomcat user registry and put them in the JazzAdmin group. If
you are using a non-Tomcat registry, then you would need to create a
user and put him in the JazzAdmin group. Perhaps we could work through
the problems you are having creating that new admin user.
