Resetting Password for FAS Versions 2.3.0+

If the administrator username and/or password have been forgotten then they can be reset to the defaults by setting a system property, which will reset the credentials on the next login attempt.

To reset credentials
  1. Add the system property (appserver.admin.password.reset=true) in <FAS root dir>\domain\configuration\
  2. Restart FAS master
  3. Open a new web browser and navigate to the web administrative interface at https://<ip_address>:8443/web_plugin_framework/webcontroller/ Where <ip_address> is the Fusion Application Server IP address (If the Web Plugin Framework is not available please use https://<ip_address>:9990  for the FAS web console).
  4. Click login. It doesn't matter what or if you enter any credentials at this stage.
  5. Go back to <FAS root dir>\domain\configuration\ and remove the property added in step 1 (or comment out the property).
  6. Restart FAS master
  7. Login is now re-enabled on the web administrative interface and the credentials reset to the default values.
Note: The default log-in details should be changed after the first login.

This information is located in the Resetting Administrator Credentials section of the Administering FCSDK guide. You may also refer to FCSDK ʻWeb Administration interface reference’ for further details.

Resetting Password for Older Versions (FAS 2.2.7 & earlier).

There is a shell script in the bin folder of the Fusion Application Server 
called This can be used to add new admin users & change the 
password of an existing admin user. To change the password of an existing 
user you simply specify the name of that user when prompted by the script. 
Details can be found in the FAS admin guide, attached, in the section 
titled "Controlling access to the Management interfaces". I've attached a 
short screen capture that show the commands that you will need to run.
