How do you change the SSPR Configuration Password?

I am wondering how I should go about resetting my SSPR's Configuration Password? In the NetIQ documentation it states the following:


https://www.netiq.com/documentation/self-service-password-reset-41/adminguide/data/t41s08bvnwez.html
"During the Self Service Password Reset installation, you specify a Configuration Password. Self Service Password Reset requires the Configuration Password prior to any modifications of its configuration. In the unlocked configuration mode, it is possible to delete the current Self Service Password Reset configuration, and then reconfigure Self Service Password Reset as if it is a new installation, including specifying a new Configuration Password."

Can I just reset the password without deleting the entire configuration? That seems a bit dramatic.

I think this is what you are looking for https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7014954:

For SSPR was installed in Windows or Linux, do the following:


Edit the SSPRConfiguration.xml file found in the Tomcat directory under webapps/SSPR/WEB-INF
and then restart the SSPR service.


Edit the SSPRConfiguration.xml as follows:



[INDENT]Set "configIsEditable" to true. It should look like this:



<property key="configIsEditable">true</property>




Delete the property "configPasswordHash"

<property key="configPasswordHash">

[/INDENT]

So what happens once that value is deleted, does SSPR prompt to set a new Configuration Password?

If I remember correctly, Yes.
