Create an MD-5-hashed version of the password for each Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS server. Using a clear-text password may suspend the account. To convert a clear-text password string:

  1. Open a command tool or shell on the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 SAM EMS server.

  2. Go to the <install directory>/nms/bin directory, where <install directory> is the server installation directory.

  3. Convert the password, as follows:

                   md5hash.bash <password string>
  4. Copy and paste the resulting MD5-hashed password string to the password area of the EmsInstance and AltEmsInstance fields of the emsConfig.import file.
