Environment

Situation

How do I change the NT Authentication account credentials used for accessing the Web Console?

How do I change the NT Authentication account credentials used for accessing the AppManager Web Console?

How do I access the AppManager Web Console using a non-default account?

How do I modify the autologin.asp file?

Resolution

Normally, the Web Console uses the account specified in the Default Web Site properties for NT Authentication. However, you can modify the autologon.asp file to use credentials different from the cached Windows account or the account specified in IIS, such as the IUSR account. 

Note: This modification uses Basic Authentication, and accounts and passwords are passed in clear text.

To configure a different account for NT Authentication:

  1. Reconfigure the IIS Properties on the Default Website and the NetIQ virtual directory to Basic Authentication.

  2. Modify the autologin.asp file to set the NT authentication to 0 instead of the default of 1 (%systemroot\Program Files\NetIQ\AppManager\web).

  3. Restart the IIS service.

You can now use your specified Windows account and any SQL login with Web Console. Verify your settings with the instructions detailed in the autologin.asp file.
