How to reset Password for Portal Admin if forgotten?

Solution:

This article talks about how to change administrative passwords by editing the user's profile via WebSphere Portal. However, in the case of a forgotten password, you can resolve the issue by performing the steps  below.

1. Navigate to profile directory \IBM\WebSphere\wp_profile\bin\

2. Run the following command

wsadmin -conntype NONE

3. Issue the following command and press enter

$AdminTask changeFileRegistryAccountPassword {-userId admin -password admin}

$AdminConfig save

The above commands should reset the user's password in the fileRegistry.xml located in <wp_profile>/config/cells/<cellname>. However, note that you will still need to run the Portal ConfigEngine task(s) to update the configuration with the new password information:

4. Navigate to IBM\WebSphere\wp_profile\ConfigEngine directory.

5. Issue the following command

ConfigEngine.bat wp-change-portal-admin-user - DnewAdminId=uid=wpsadmin,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm -DnewAdminPw=Pass1234 -Dskip.ldap.validation=true

6. If your WebSphere Application Server admin user is the same ID as your Portal admin user, then also issue the following command:

ConfigEnginewp-change-was-admin-user -DnewAdminId=uid=wpsadmin,o=defaultWIMFileBasedRealm -DnewAdminPw=Pass1234 -Dskip.ldap.validation=true
Where wpsadmin is the new userId and Pass1234 is the new password of the server.

7. Restart the servers including Portal.
