BAS Password Reset in BES Express


Recently, our Administrator for our BES server recently left. He left some documents behind on how to login into our BES server. We can log into BES using Active Directory with 'besadmin.'




However, our issue is that the BAS 'admin' password is invalid and needs to be reset.




I've looked over past posts on how to reset the BAS password, via going into the SQL, changing the Hash and use an executable SQL statement as well.




Is there any other means of resetting the BAS 'admin' password WITHOUT having to reinstall the software?




Thank you in advance for your help! Smiley Happy
