Hi Bharath,

Thanks of the quick reply..!!!

As instructed I have performed the activity, but no luck..:(
Below is the screenshot for your reference,
D:\PF\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin>wsadmin.bat -CONNTYPE none
WASX7357I: By request, this scripting client is not connected to any server process. Certain configuration and application operations will be available in local mode.
WASX7031I: For help, enter: "print"

<function securityoff at 0x2>

Please let me know if i have executed correctly

Hi Sadanand,

The WAS instance should be running to execute the command. 
If yes, a restart of WAS is required for the change to take effect.

Hi Bharath,

The Was Instance was Running and after executing the command i did a restart also.

There is IHS invovled on Top of WAS here.. is tat a issue ???

Hi Sadanand,

IHS doesn't play any role in this scenario.
May be you can reach out to WAS support to identify why the command doesn't work.

Alternatively, you may disable it in security.xml file as suggested in the below technote:

Be sure to backup that file before editing.

Best Regards,
