asadmin change-admin-password --domain_name [DOMAIN_NAME]
asadmin enable-secure-admin --port [PORT_NAME]


Another thing I found (at least for version 3.1.1) is that to enable secure admin access for additional domains, one refers to the port number the domain is using for admin access:

And, once you do that, how often do you have to provide authentication details to NetBeans once you've registered that remote instance in the ide? ie: does it ask you every time you start NetBeans, or is it storing the password for you?
