If you re-configure the federated repository used for TIP authentication and make a mistake in the setup then it is possible that you can't get back into TIP (or indeed perform a normal stop of eWAS).

There is a simple way to switch off authentication in TIP;

  • Edit security.xml in "/opt/IBM/tivoli/tip/profiles/TIPProfile/config/cells/TIPCell"
  • Locate the first enabled="true" and change it to "false" (i.e. useDomainQualifiedUserNames="false" enabled="true" cacheTimeout="600")
  • Restart TIP. (It is likely that you can't stop TIP due to authentication problems so you may have to just kill it & then do a normal start).

For example;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<security:Security xmi:version="2.0" xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI" xmlns:orb.securityprotocol="http://www.ibm.com/websphere/appserver/schemas/5.0/orb.securityprotocol.xmi" xmlns:security="http://www.ibm.com/websphere/appserver/schemas/5.0/security.xmi" xmi:id="Security_1" useLocalSecurityServer="true" useDomainQualifiedUserNames="false" enabled="true" cacheTimeout="600" issuePermissionWarning="true" activeProtocol="BOTH" enforceJava2Security="false" enforceFineGrainedJCASecurity="false" appEnabled="true" dynamicallyUpdateSSLConfig="true" activeAuthMechanism="LTPA_1" activeUserRegistry="WIMUserRegistry_1" defaultSSLSettings="SSLConfig_TIPNode_1">

You can then login with any string as the account name and resolve the original configuration error
