How do I reset the admin password or create a new admin in Splunk 7+?

Renaming etc/passwd to passwd.bak and using user-seed.conf doesn't seem to work and I'm on a mac.

Finally i could hard reset my admin pass from CLI using -

./splunk cmd splunkd rest --noauth POST /services/admin/users/admin "password=new8charpass"

Register for .conf21 Now! Go Vegas or Go Virtual!

How will you .conf21? You decide! Go in-person in Las Vegas, 10/18-10/21, or go online with .conf21 Virtual, 10/19-10/20.
