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"
