    Hey there,

     

    Yeah it needs you to know the previous password, thing is, i always knew it yet installation was blocking me from proceeding (in my case with Web Client for vSphere) as admin@SystemDomain, somehow using that precedure helped me reset it and the system was able to recognize it again.

     

    We could say the SSO sometimes confuses its own password.

     

    I hope it helps somebody later on that looks for a solution in a case like this.

    The DB hash technique is a little confusing to me (probably because its translated). How do I set up a new SSO database? Do I use a completely separate Windows installation and install SSO there, or do I just reinstall it on the same computer as my current SSO installation?

    Yes.  Create what is referred to as the DummyDB by installing SSO on a completely different VM.  Then use that install to take a copy of the appropriate DB data and inject that into your real enfironment.

    Hmm.. didn't work. I was still able to reset my admin password using the old master password using the "rsautil reset-admin-password" command.

    The link with details and instructions on how to use the rsautil program is here: VMware KB: Unlocking and resetting the vCenter Single Sign On (SSO) administrator password

    I cannot reinstall as it's asking me for a Master password.

    The unsupported "build a new database and copy the hash" process is discussed in this thread; http://communities.vmware.com/message/2230313

     

    Read the post by Grasshopper.

     

    Basically, it goes like this;

    1. Install a unconnected, totally seperate, new vCenter and SSO install, and have it use a new database. This is all temporary, so just put it on a standalone server or something.
    2. When doing this new install, record and write down that NEW Master password.
    3. When this new install is complete, pull up the database tables and look for the hash for the "admin" SSO password. This is the hashed password for the new install. This is described in the Grasshopper links.
    4. Copy that hash from the NEW install.
    5. Paste that hash into the database on your OLD, Production SSO database.
    6. The database table and field locations are mentioned in the post and links from Grasshopper
    7. Now the hold, production database will have the password you set in the new install.
    8. There are some other steps about stopping services, etc., so read those posts.

     

    Disclaimer; I'm sure this processes has the ability to totally mess up your cluster, or your production SSO database. It's also unsupported by VMware, but several folks have used it successfully. I've used it with success on other similar databases, but not SSO specifically.

     

    This really is a "last resort" process.

    Hi firmdale

     

    Do not type anything in password just click on Next you will get Message " Provided password is wrong or empty. However, you can proceed the uninstallation but vCenter Single Sign In database will be left out after uninstallation" just click OK and continue the uninstall process.

     

    You have to remove database manually

    Could some post a HASH for a password like "Temp1234." so that everyone won't have to reinstall SSO, but rather copy this HASH into their DB, and then use Temp1234. as their admin@System-Domain password????  We are all going to change it right after anyways.  It would save everyone lots of steps.

    I have this one from helping someone out before... It worked then, so ... Hope it helps some folks.


    the password is "P@ssw0rd" (without the quotes)

    the hash: {SSHA256}qguSTmcPLof/kca9rCmHTksmvZpqZVlBW2NP+8OWYgo37SbXiw==

    Hi ,

     

    For wider audience here is script

     

    if SSO password ( admini@system-domain ) needs to be reset, please execute below query on RSA database:

     

    UPDATE

    [dbo].[IMS_PRINCIPAL]

    SET

    [PASSWORD] = '{SSHA256}KGOnPYya2qwhF9w4xK157EZZ/RqIxParohltZWU7h2T/VGjNRA=='

    WHERE

    LOGINUID = 'admin'

    AND

    PRINCIPAL_IS_DESCRIPTION = 'Admin';

     

    This will reset the password to "VMware1234!", after which you login and change the password as needed.


    Note: Take backup of RSA database before executing this


    Regards

    Mohammed
