You can simply wipe the passwd file on the server to reset the password

/opt/splunk/etc/passwd then restart Splunk and it will have the default admin/changeme credentials

Thanks. I renamed the passwd file to some other name and then restarted the server. Able to login now.

i installed splunk forwarder and tried to run below command : ./splunk enable boot-start --accept-license.

I got below error:
This appears to be your first time running this version of Splunk.
Can't create RC file "/etc/init.d/splunk": Permission denied

Is there a way that the RC file is created in some different path because i don't have access to add/modify any files in /opt or /etc folder.
