I downloaded splunk enterprise on my personal Windows 10. I changed my login and password from default admin/changeme, but now I no longer able to login using the current password. How can I reset my password?

Change the name of passwd in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/passwd to passwd.bak then restart the Splunk service. This should change the password back to the default of admin/changeme
