EM 13c: How to Determine the Credential Attributes Needed to Modify Exadata-related EM Named Credentials using emcli ? (Doc ID 2495041.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 19, 2022

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 Exadata password change scripts will also automate changing the passwords for the named credentials on the Enterporise Manager (EM) 13.2.2 Cloud Control side. 
The resulting problem: for the attributes part, HostPassword works for the Compute Node Host:

./emcli modify_named_credential -cred_name=NC_EXA_DB_HOST_ROOT -attributes='HostUserName:root;HostPassword:'
Credential updated.

However, the other Linux servers/switches cannot be changed as easily. Changing the (Storage) Cell Server, ILOM, and IB Switch
passwords, the "HostUserName" and "HostPassword" attributes cannot be specified, returning this error:

Error occurred: Invalid credential column name HostUserName

What would be the correct attribute names to change the password for these named credentials?:

./emcli modify_named_credential -cred_name=NC_EXA_CELL_HOST_ROOT -attributes='<?>Name:root;<?>Password:'
./emcli modify_named_credential -cred_name=EXADATA_ILOM_ROOT -attributes='<?>UserName:root;<?>Password:'
