In the situation that authentication against the authorization server is failing, access to SSP 7 is no longer possible. For those situations, a Supervisor account is foreseen in SSP 7. This Supervisor account is able to login without checking the configured authentication source. The Supervisor account needs to be enabled in the web.config file of the common application. Here you can define the username and password.
By default the Supervisor account is disabled. The default username and password is configured as admin2/admin2. Please read chapter User Access of the Installation Guide for more information on configuring the Supervisor account.
