Recover/reset Altiris Password

Created: 29 Sep 2011 | 1 comment


We installed Altiris, but the person who installed it has forgotten the password.

Is there a way to recover/reset the main password which is prompted for when running Altiris Client Management Suite the server? Or do we simply re-install?
