    Exclamation Reset Admin password lost on Pentaho 5.0.1 CE


    Before Christmas I installed for testing purpose a Pentaho 5.0.1 CE following the Pentaho BI Server 5.0.1CE MySQL installation guide

    At installation time I changed the Admin password. After Christmas holidays I cannot enter in the Pentaho portal because I don't remember it

    I have the report-designer configured with the admin password and using it I can enter in the repository. But the password there is encrypted. So I cannot recover it from the config file. It appears like this :

    password=Encrypted 123daadsdf234jfsfq2r

    I also though that the password was kept on the mysql DB on the hibernate but I cannot see it there.

    Any Idea how can I reset/recover the admin password.

    Thank you for your time

    Best regards

    Finally I had to re-install only the application. The Databases stayed untouched.
