Hi Jananee_iNautix,

you can move the file $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/passwd to a new directory and restart splunk. This will reset your admin's password to the default one. If there are any other users in the old passwd file, copy them after the restart into the new $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/passwdfile and restart splunk again.

hope this helps ...
