5. While you are in directory make copies of the two jmx-console properties files and call them web-console-roles.properties
and web-console-users.prperties respectively.
6. The property files for web-console currently exist under \server\default\deploy\management\console-mgr.sar\web-console.war\WEB-INF\classes.
I would rename these files.
7. edit \server\default\conf\login-config.xml
<application-policy name = "web-console">
flag = "required">
<module-option name="usersProperties">props/web-console-users.properties</module-option> <module-option name="rolesProperties">props/web-console-roles.properties</module-option> </login-module>
In the above you need to add the props/ because this is missing in the original file.
Larsen, Thanks a lot for the link.
It clearly explains how to enable security for jmx and web consoles, though I had intended to disable security altogether.
Instead I have enabled and I am able to login and view JMX and WEB consoles.
one clarification needed. In the link it is given that by default security is disabled. It doesn't appear like that with - jboss-eap-4.3
But my issue is resolved. Thanks a lot for the help
