Resetting zPortal Management Console Administrator Credentials

  1. Administrator credentials can be reset using following two methods:
    Using Installation wizard in Maintenance (Repair) mode

Using Installation Wizard in Maintenance Mode

If zPortal Controller installation is invoked on the windows server machine, already installed with same version of zPortal Controller then installation is run in maintenance mode which provides the option of repairing existing installation.

zPortal Controller repair option can also be used to reset the administrator credentials in the following situations:

    • Administrator does not remember the username or password and thus cannot change the password from management console
    • Administrator is willing to reset the username also along with password

  3. Provide new administrator credentials and complete the zPortal Controller repair setup
  4. The password for zPortal Controller Service will reset with provided credentials
  5. Reload the zPortal Controller Management console to attempt login using new credentials
