Hi,

May I please get some clarification as to why my password isn't accepted by the splunk hash-passwd CLI command? Need to place it in my user-seed.conf. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

It will accept 8 alphanumeric characters without single quotes. If you are using any special characters, you must mentioned them into single quote.


1. splunk hash-passwd acdef123
2. splunk hash-passwd 'Es$jhsd2'

Thanks
