A possible way to approach this;

  1) install ACS to the point of a working management head (e.g., you 
can login using webgui.)

  2) use API call authenticated with login/password and the default 
admin credentials setup at first install to generate keys and get them

  3) continue using API calls using key based authentication

CloudMonkey in recent releases was enhanced to support login/password 
based auth.  The Marving test framework in recent ACS versions uses an 
API backend that support login/password based auth.

There is also the integration port with non authenticated API calls. 
This is not enabled by default. A variant is to install MGR-head, stop 
it, modify DB to allow integration port access*, start MGR-head and work 
with the integration port for further non authenticated configuration to 
get authenticated API access going.


* set the global parameter governing which port the integration port is 
on to non NULL.
