Profiler Agent password security issue

Jump to solution

I am able to wondering how i can change the profiler agent password. Currently it is defaulted to admin/admin.

 

On the client I have found that it is encrypted in: C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\Profiler Agent\core.xml

   <http>
      <port>4319</port>
      <password>MD5:21232F297A57A5A743894A0E4A801FC3</password>
      <sslEnabled>true</sslEnabled>
    </http>

What is the best way to change this on both the agent and profiler server?

 

Thanks,

Steve

It's possible the SSL passwords got out of sync so here are instructions to reset: 

 

  • You will want to delete the password tag from that xml file. 
  • Example: <password>MD5:21232F297A57A5A743894A0E4A801FC3</password>
  • Once you've deleted the password tag, save the file, and then start the ProfilerAgent service. Let us know how that works for you.

 

If you're still having problems after that please open a support ticket here: http://www.solarwinds.com/support/ticket/, reference this post.
