Log in as Master from CyberArk PrivateArk Client

 Here is some explanation about the different between Master account and built-in Administrator account. 

  • Master user is automatically added to all new safes with full rights - even safes it did not create. It requires a special configuration in order to login into it.

  • Administrator is a built-in administrative user, but unlike Master it does not get automatically assigned to all new safes created (by other users).

By default configuration, if you are trying to log in through PrivateArk Client  using Master account, you will get following error:
In certain situation, for example, your administrator account suspended because five times failed authentication. And you do not have second admin account to unlock it. Master account is your last resort to resolve this kind of DR issue. 

Log in using Master Account

A couple of ways to do that.

1  Using Master CD

  • Place Master CD into server.
  • Double click Private Ark icon
  • Enter 'Master' as the user and enter password.

2  Using Master Key File

  • Edit dbparm.ini File
  • Change RecoveryPrvKey settings to your Master Key file location
  • Restart PrivateArk Server Service
  • Log in using Master Account
