Running the BigFix Administration Tool

The Installer automatically creates the BigFix Administration Tool when it installs the other components of the Console program. This program operates independently of the Console and is intended for Administrative Operators only. You can find it from the Start menu: Start > All Programs > BigFix > BigFix Administration Tool. To run the program, you must first browse to the private key (license.pvk).

You can also change your administrative password through this interface. After you have selected the private key file, click OK to continue. You must supply your private key password to proceed.

Note: When you change the private key password you change only the password of the local file; the other DSA BigFix servers are not updated. They continue to use their own license file and password unless it is replaced from the changed license file.

Use the BigFix console to perform the user management tasks.
