Admin Account

I mistakenly changed my Admin to Power in Splunk Enterprise. Is there any way to change Power back to Admin? I hope that makes sense.

Hi @SeannF,

If you have access to filesystem, you should edit $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/passwd file and replace power  with admin on admin user line. After restart your role will be admin.
