I have a virtual image of a WAS server but it can no longer access the LDAP/AD that holds the administration password as it has moved to a different network. As a result, I can't login to change the settings.

I want to change the IP of the address by hand or turn off security so that I can login and change it by hand.

I knew a way to do this once...

To disable administrative security navigate to the $WAS_PROFILE/bin directory and issue,

wsadmin -conntype NONE

Enter the following in the wsadmin prompt,


Restart the WAS server.

*Administrative security can be re-enabled via the console. Click through Security > Global Security and select the Enable administrative security check box. Restart the WAS server.
