If you forget the admin account password, you can reset the password back to admin.

To reset the password of the admin account:

  1. SSH to the appliance as 'admin' user (default password 'admin'). Use command "sudo su" to gain root access.
  2. Enter: psql -U h9pgsu hyper9db
    You should see hyper9db=#
  3. Enter: UPDATE auth_user SET password = '' WHERE username = 'admin';
    You should see UPDATE 1
  4. Enter:\q

The admin password has now been reset to a blank password you can now login with just the username and no password.
