Resetting the mzadmin Password

If the password for mzadmin is lost, it can either be changed by another user belonging to the Administration group or be set according to the following procedure:

  1. Add a Platform property for setting the password for mzadmin.

    $ mzsh topo set topo://container:<container>/pico:platform/ \ 
    `mzsh encryptpassword <new password>`
  2. Restart the Platform:

    $ mzsh restart platform

When the platform is restarted, the password for mzadmin is reset.


Remember to remove the property mz.user.emergency.unlock, or the password will be reset at every restart of the platform.

$ mzsh topo unset topo://container:<container>/pico:platform/
