    Reset Password

    When using Internal security, any user password can be reset.


    • All cluster nodes are completely shut down. See Startup/Shutdown for more information.

    • This command is run on the master node.


    Reset password command
    <DREMIO_HOME>/bin/dremio-admin set-password \
    -u <ACCOUNT_USER> \


    To obtain a list of options on the command line:

    List reset password command options
    ./dremio-admin set-password -h

    Restore options:

    Reset password command options output
      -h, --help
        show usage
      -p, --password
      -u, --username
        username of user


    If the --password option is specified without a value, the utility prompts for one interactively.


    This following example resets the password for user123.
