How to find the passwd file under /splunk/etc directory in Linux Ubuntu?

New Member

I have installed splunk in my Linux Ubuntu system. I have forgot the admin password and now I am trying to retrieve it but I am not able to find the passwd file under /splunk/etc directory

It will be great help if you can show a video for the same.

Which directory you installed splunk to? Also are you accesing it via root or non-root ?
