Hi,

I have installed jboss-eap-4.3 and running the default server with JDK5.0_11.
Server starts without errors with the command run.sh -c default.

When I attempt to to view JBoss Web Console in http://localhost:9080/, it asks for password.
I tried admin/admin but it doesn't work.

Looked at the properties files in conf\props, and added a user user1/user1 in jmx-console-users.properties. And restarted the server.
I still can not login to the server.

Please help

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">
<authentication>
<login-module code="org.jboss.security.auth.spi.UsersRolesLoginModule"
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>
</authentication>
</application-policy

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

The community versions of JBoss AS have the default security disabled. You are using EAP version (the enterprise paid version) for which security is enabled by default.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
