To change the Directory Manager DN and password and the encryption scheme used for this password:

1.Log in to the Directory Console as Directory Manager. If you are already logged in to the Console, see "Binding to the Directory from Red Hat Console", for instructions on how to log in as a different user.

2.In the Directory Server Console, select the Configuration tab, and then select the top entry in the navigation tree in the left pane.

3.Select the Manager tab in the right pane.

4.Enter the new distinguished name for the Directory Manager in the Root DN field. The default value is cn=Directory Manager.

5.From the Manager Password Encryption pull-down menu, select the storage scheme you want the server to use to store the password for Directory Manager.

6.Enter the new password, and confirm it using the text fields provided.

7.Click Save.
