The TADDM administrator has expired

If your administrator login expires and you have no other administrative login that can reset the password you will need to do the following steps.

  1. Login to the Primary Storage Server
  2. Edit the userdata.xml file. This will be found in $TADDM_HOME/etc e.g. /opt/IBM/taddm/dist/etc
  3. Find the username in the file

    <PersistentUser>
            <username>administrator</username>
            <sessionTimeout>240</sessionTimeout>
            <password>vPLoLBv6LhQPIYV+Eb5pSg==</password>
            <passwordExpiry>2050/8/16</passwordExpiry>
            <numInvalidLogins>0</numInvalidLogins>
            <attributes>{fullname=Product Administrator,  department=IT}</attributes>
    </PersistentUser>

  4. Look for the <passwordExpiry>2050/8/16</passwordExpiry> tag   (there could be other string in your case)
  5. Update the date to a later date
  6. Restart TADDM (control restart)
  7. Log in and reset the password

Thats should fix the issue
