How can I reset the administrator password in Password Depot Server?


When you add new databases to Password Depot Enterprise Server, they are re-encrypted in the Enterprise Server with the administrator's password - regardless of the original master password of the database.

Thus a "reset" of the admin password in the actual sense is of course not possible! 

Although you can reset the administrator password to log back into the Server Manager as described below, this will require you to add all databases again.

To reset the administrator password:

  • Stop Password Depot Enterprise Server or the service.
  • Delete the file pwd_srv.cfg, which is located in the directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\AceBIT\Password Depot Server 11" by default in version 11.
  • Restart the server service.

Note: You must now add all databases again to encrypt them with the new password.

If you want to change the admin password or username, click the Users tab, click the admin user on the right, and then select Properties.
