Change the admin password

Perform the following steps to change the dsp-admin password.

The print-login script only returns the original password generated by the installer. If you forget your changed admin password, you'll need to reset your password again.

  1. From the master node, run the reset password script.
    sudo ./reset-admin-password
  2. Enter your new password.
  3. Navigate back to the DSP UI and login with your new password.
