CUA and password reset

Hi All,

In CUA, I have 10 child systems that is connected to central client.

Suppose a user got locked in one of the child system, is it possible to reset pwd from central client?

Thanks and Regards, Pradeep

PS: I'm not talking about initial pwd.

    Moved to the security forum...

    Which release(s) are you on?

    All versions of CUA I have used ( 4.6 onwards) have the facility to reset the password in the child systems from the CUA master.

    Hi Pradeep,

    make sure, that you use the 'change password' button on the entry screen of SU01. If you use the 'normal' password field on the 'logon data' tab, this will reset the password only for the cua-master system itself.

    If you use the button on the entry screen of su01, a popup will appear, where you can

    a) define the new initial password

    b) choose the system for wich this change should be performed

    Make sure that the setting for initial password is set in SCUM to 'global' or 'everywhere' ('everywhere' is depending on supportpackage and release of your systems to work properly!).

    You can reset the password from the central client as well as the Child client..

    Initially you need to Unlock the user from the Central Client (CUA) and then you can globally change the password for all the Child systems or change the password locally for the individual systems for which the user was locked.

    • Hi Sanatosh,

      that sounds like if the settings in SCUM allow only local password resets.

      Got to TX SCUM->logondata tab and change the setting from 'local' to 'global' or 'everywhere'. Save.

      After that you should be able again to reset passwords from the CUA master for child systems.

      I hope this will give the clue...
