This article shows the steps to change the root account password for the console of EAC if it was forgotten.
To reset the password, do the following:
- Go to ..\Endpoint Application Control\AcServer-Data\.
- Look for the import-settings.properties.processed file.
- Edit file and add to following line:
This will change the password for the built-in root user to “trend”.This can be applied to any other account (e.g. To change the password for user "lidia", modify the value to user.lidia.password=trend.
- Save the file and rename it to "import-settings.properties" (remove the .processed suffix).
After a while, the Server reprocesses this file (it gets the suffix .processed again) and applies the changes. This will indicate that the password has been changed and the user can login using root/trend.
