I have lost the password to my FPSC administrator account.
Overwrite the unknown administrator account’s password hash with a known password hash.
If you have lost your administrator password to FootPrints Service Core v11.5, this is how you can reset it to a known value.
Log into SQL Server Management Studio and open the Footprints database.
Navigate to the dbo.users table.
Paste the following hash into the password field for the appropriate account.
- Password has for the password “root“
Verify that the authentication_method field is set to either PRIMARY or SECONDARY depending upon which you have set to internal FootPrints Authentication.
Verify that you can log in using the account whose password you just overlaid.
