The ability to override the management password can come in handy in the event the admin password is lost or forgotten. 

 

For older versions 8.8 and earlier, 

Re-run the config utility located in the installation directory as shown below:


config -host [ip address] -port [port] -password [password]

The [ip address] will be the IP address of the administrative service, the port should be 10880 by default and the password is the new password you want to use.

Before running this utility make sure to shutdown your administrative service and any running instance of JSCAPE MFT Server Manager.

 

For versions 9.0 - 9.2

Re-run the server-configuration utility located in the installation directory as shown below:

 

server-configuration -host [ip address] -port [port] -rest.host [ip address] -rest.port [rest.port] -user [username] -password [password]

where [ip address] and [port] are the IP/port that you want the JSCAPE MFT Server Service to listen on, [rest.port] is the port that you want the REST web service to listen on, and [username] [password] are the credentials you will use when connecting to the service.  Defaults ports for JSCAPE MFT Server Service and REST web service are 10880 and 11880 respectively.

Before running this utility make sure to shutdown your administrative service and any running instance of JSCAPE MFT Server Manager.

 

For versions 9.3 - Current version (11.0 as of this writing)

Re-run the js-addadmin utility located in the installation directory as shown below:

 

js-addadmin -db -username [username] -password [password] -sa

 

 

Before running this utility make sure to shutdown your administrative service and any running instance of JSCAPE MFT Server Manager.
