Question Title Reset the admin password for Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager

Symantec Enpoint Manager

You can use the resetpass.bat tool to reset the user name and password for the account that you use to log on to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. If the user name or password is something other than admin, running resetpass.bat changes the user name and password back to admin.

  2. Locate the Drive:\Program Files\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Tools folder.
  3. Double-click resetpass.bat. The user name and password are reset to admin.
  4. Log on to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager using admin for both the user name and the password, and change the password.
