- “amsadmin” is the new user. It should be there in documentation.
- You have to do sudo to run any privileged commands(e.g starting stopping ams e.t.c) on these amis.
- You will be3 asked to reset the password for user amsadmin the first time you login(ssh) into the ami instance.
The documentation doesnt mention anywhere that the user id is amsadmin..
neither in EC2 marketplace documentation of amazon nor in adobe site. They
only mention "root" as the user id. Pls update the docs to reflect the
current status. This makes life difficult.
And 2nd question: Iam able to login now into the shell. But I still dont
know the administrative console user id / password.
I checked here /opt/adobe/ams/conf/ams.ini and edited to place user id /
password / port no.1111 etc.. into the file and restarted the ams server as
well as adminserver using amsmgr cmd. But still when I open ams admin
console page from ams homepage on port 80, and key in the IP / user id/
password, still the login fails. Not sure how to login. Currently Iam
logged out of AWS. Hence Iam not pasting the exact steps of what I have
done. Pls let me know if you need to see them.
Have you gone through the following help document at www.adobe.com/go/ams_on_aws_help.
There is a change in the way one configures administrative console password.
Do let me know if you still have questions after going through this help document?
P.S I am assuming you are using Amazon Market place for launching you AMS 5.0.4(latest as of today) Amazon Ami for your instance.
You can purchase the instance from following web page...
Look at Getting Strarted URL in resource secton.

- Use “amsadmin” user to login to AMS EC2 instance as root user has been disabled.
- If you are logging in for the first time using SSH, use Putty to set the password for the amsadmin user as you will not be able to login using WinSCP.
- Launch Putty to log into the instance.
- In the Host Name (or IP address) box, enter the Public DNS of the instance you launched.
- In the Category pane on the left, choose Connection>SSH>Auth.
- Browse to locate the private key for authentication and click Open. See Using key pairs to connect to an instance securely, to understand how to use PuTTYgen application to convert the .pem file to a .ppk file.
- Log in as amsadmin user.
- Enter a valid password and confirm the new password.
Note: For subsequent logins, you can either use Putty or WinSCP
