Change default password of ISEE client

I need to change about 400 ISEE client default password.
1)Some idea how to do it with out using the browser on every single ISEE client ?
2)Where the password is stored on the system ?

Re: Change default password of ISEE client

Massimo,

The user name and password are stored in the motprefs file.

You might try to use coreconfig to change these values. As shown in the following capture coreconfig allows you to display and replace values stored in the motprefs file:

Usage: coreconfig -s|-g|-r KeyName [ValueName]
-s Set value: sets keyName to newValue if the value is not already set.
-r Replace value: replace or append the value of keyName with newValue
-g Get value: displays the value of keyName to stdout
Return codes:
0 returned successfully
1 key already exists - usually from -s option
2 key not found - usually from -g option
3 illegal characters in key or value
4 unable to read config file
5 unable to write to config file
6 unable to restart daemon
7 other error

Example:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>"C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\ISEE\R
emoteSupport\bin\coreconfig.cmd" -g AGENT_AUTHSTR
37ec9af0488e005aa0fdd72a941d0ebd

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>"C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\ISEE\R
emoteSupport\bin\coreconfig.cmd" -g AGENT_USER
admin

As you can see the user name is in clear text and presents no problem. The password (AGENT_AUTHSTR) is not so easy. Perhaps, you could configure one ISEE Client using the browser and copy the resulting password hash to the other servers using coreconfig.

I have not tested this but I think it should work.

Take care,
frank

Re: Change default password of ISEE client


Hi,

You can use the same procedure as Frank had provided for password:

C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\ISEE\R
emoteSupport\bin\coreconfig.cmd -g AGENT_PASSWD 123456

This would change the password to 123456, you will need to stop/start hpservices for this to take affect.

Hope this helps,
