Set the JMX password to access Address Manager using a Java application.

Run the configure jmx command to change the password for the jmxadmin user account. BlueCat recommends using Java VisualVM (jvisualvm) to access and manage JMX.
Password must contain:
  • at least one numeric character
  • at least one uppercase
  • at least one lowercase
  • at least one special character
  • must be minimum of 8 characters
Password must not contain:
  • backslash (\)
  • apostrophe (')
  • blank space
Important: The JMX password is necessary when configuring the application server and should only be modified by a system administrator.
Note: Detailed documentation on Java application tools is out of scope of this documentation. Refer to Java VisualVM (jvisualvm) documentation for details. (https://visualvm.java.net)
