Create Administration Users


To administrate and monitor the ICM from the browser, you need an administration user. You create one in program icmon.

       1.      As user <sid>adm go to the directory where the executables are kept and call up icmon –a pf=<instance profile>.

The following appears:

Maintain authentication file


File name (icmauth.txt):   .

       2.      If you are happy with the default file name, press the enter key, otherwise enter a different file name or path.

       3.      In the next menu choose a (add user to set).

       4.      Enter the user name, then the password twice, the group name, the subject of the X.509 certificate (wildcards allowed, and it can be left empty).

User Name: icmadm

Enter Password: *****

Re-enter Password: *****

Group Name: user

Subject Value of Client Cert: CN=template,*

new entry locally created

The user created is in group user, the user is therefore a monitoring user without administration authorization.

If you want a user to be able to log on only with the X.509 client certificate, you can enter an x as the password (with queries), which makes the following entry (in the example) in file:


       5.      Choose s (save changes of set to file), to copy your changes from the local buffer to the authorization file.

       6.      Choose q, to quit the program.

You can display the users in the menu by choosing l (list users of set), though you will only see the users in the local buffer. To view the users copied to the file, look in the file or call up icmon –a again.


You have created a user with which you can use the Web Administration Interface for monitoring.
