The default administrative record provides full access to any server by using the serverConnect.conf file.

* : admin : changeme : All

This record authenticates clients that provide the SDK username “admin” and the password “changeme”. This account grants administrative privileges or full access, which is denoted by the value of All in the privilege field.

Note:

Change the password for this account after installation. You must make any changes to the corresponding records in both the serverConnect.conf and clientConnect.conf files. Replace the admin user only after you have set up a corresponding administrative account in the Global Manager. You should never remove or disable an administrative account in the Global Manager.

The corresponding automatic authentication record in clientConnect.conf grants any client, which uses the file, full access to any server by using the corresponding record in the serverConnect.conf file.

* : * : admin : changeme

Since this record appears later in the clientConnect.conf file than the interactive users record (* : * : <PROMPT> : <PROMPT>), only noninteractive clients will be granted full access, unless interactive users type the correct username ("admin") and password ("changeme").

Connection privileges on page 91 provides additional information about the All access permission.
