Hi, how can I reset the admin password of Splunk Enterprise 6 trial version that was installed in a computer running Windows 7 operating system?

I installed the application and worked fine. Later, I tried to access it and didn't recognize the password I had set.

Can you please advise?
Thanks.

I've had similar problems , i can not access my Windows password because i forgot Windows 7 password .
But for Windows 7 user , the NT password reset tool is free and effective , we can use it to solve this problem ,

To reset the Splunk to use default credential (admin/changeme), you would need to login to your windows 7 machine, using local administrator account. Then go to SplunkInstallDir->etc. You should see a file called passwd. Keep a backup of this file and then delete it. (this file contains all the credentials/users, which you may required to restore if you have created additional users). Then restart the splunk. This should allow you to log in using admin/changeme credentials.
