Restoring the VMM setup with a federated file repository | HCL Digital Experience

If your business changes or your user registry configuration is inoperable, run the wp-restore-default-repository-configuration task to restore the default VMM setup with a federated file repository. Then, reconfigure your user registry. The task deletes all existing repositories, creates a realm, and configures a file repository in VMM. The task also creates a user and group, which is set to the HCL Digital Experience administrator.


  1. Before you configure security, use the IBM® WebSphere® Application Server backupConfig task to create and store a backup of the HCL Portal configuration. Read backupConfig command for information.
  2. Go to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties directory.
  3. Open the file with a text editor.

    • Windows: ConfigEngine.bat wp-restore-default-repository-configuration -DWasPassword=password

    • IBM® i: wp-restore-default-repository-add-group-member -DgroupUniqueName=value -DmemberUniqueName=value -DWasPassword=password
    • Windows: ConfigEngine.bat wp-restore-default-repository-add-group-member -DgroupUniqueName=value -DmemberUniqueName=value -DWasPassword=password
    • z/OS®: ./ wp-restore-default-repository-add-group-member -DgroupUniqueName=value -DmemberUniqueName=value -DWasPassword=password
