Reset the Web UI Admin Password

This section explains how to set the web UI admin password using the Meridian installation script.

After you install Meridian, the web UI admin user’s password is set to admin by default. You can change this password after the initial login to the Meridian web UI. In the case of a forgotten password or deployment scenarios that require users to set this password on installation you can use the Meridian installation script to reset this password.

You need to add the option ` -R` (or --reset-webui-password) and provide the password to set as an argument.

Skip upgrade tasks and set web UI admin password to "foobar"
sudo /usr/share/opennms/bin/install -S -R foobar
