whilst creating an ODM Decision Center cluster: -

/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/bin/createODMDecisionCenterCluster.sh -adminUsername wasadmin -adminPassword passw0rd -clusterPropertiesFile /opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/bin/odm/ODMDecisionCenterCluster.properties

I knew that the credentials that I was using were A-OK: -

/opt/ibm/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/bin/wsadmin.sh -lang jython -username wasadmin -password passw0rd
