If you are running SIM 4.2 you can use the new "Configure or Repair Agents" task to reset the password.

Or you can copy the CPQHMMD.ACL file from C:\compaq\WBEM over from another server if you know the passwords for that one and restart the webagent.

Hallo, Connect with HP-SIM4.x or CIM7 to the Server Managment Homepage (this use the certifikat) and then you can change the password!

Re: SIM password lost for System Management Homepage

Hello Chrisitan,

the accounts for the System Managment Hompage are independent of the operating system. They are stored in a file ending with .ACL as mentioned above.
Usually the accounts "Administrator","Operator" and "User" are defined. You specify this passwords when you install a server with a smart start CD from the 7.x series before inserting the OS CD.
When you use the remote deployment utility you have to specifiy them for every component related to it (Foundation Agents, HP Managment Agents) before you can deploy them.

Best regards

Everyone should note that there's a vunerability for Systems Homepage now. See below but as a bonus of patching which doesn't require a reboot with a great distribution method now (you can push out to 100's of servers in less than an hour)you now have the new Kerbos enabled homepage and can use AD or local admin users to authenticate, no more Admin, Operator, User! Which is nice...

If you're 6.40 and upwards you should install.

You only need one of the below to be secure but The patch can be pre-configured to set the Systems Management Server trusted certificate and use Kerberos authentication so can use local and AD accounts as mentioned, all preconfigured before you install.
