Environment


Sentinel 5.1.3
Sentinel 5.1.3 Agent Manager

Situation

During the installation of Sentinel 5.1.3 (or earlier) the administrator is prompted for the Collector Manager password. If entered this is required whenever the Collector Manager is accessed from the Collector Builder. If this password is lost it must be reset.

Resolution

On the server running the Collector Manager run the following command:

$ESEC_HOME/wizard/agent-manager.sh password newPassword

or

%ESEC_HOME%\wizard\agent-manager.bat password newPassword

It is important that the system be secure from the default installation to prevent random users from running this command. By default the security is there but overriding it could inadvertently give others access to the Collector Manager. Servers generally should not have users logging in interactively which can also prevent this from being a problem.

The Collector Manager will be restarted during this process.
