It is currently not possible to specify a different admin role name in ServiceMix 4.3.
ServiceMix 4.4 will use Karaf 2.2 and will then allow to specify the admin role name in etc/system.properties in the configuration variable
But again, this is currently not possible in ServiceMix 4.3.1. Right now the role name needs to be called "admin".

I added a new role named admin (cn=admin,ou=roles,dc=example,dc=com), and added a couple users to it. I tried again, and I can still get in with users who are members and users who are not members of that admin group. Any ideas why?
Also, any idea when 4.4 will be released?
