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?
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 ,
I used iSeepassword Windows password recovery too create a boot USB and reset my password on windows 7. So, if you forgot the Windows password, you can easily reset windows password with iSeePassword, it's easy to use.
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.
