I need to reset the admin password in McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

I re-set the password in epolicy using a password with special characters (ie. alt + 252) and it took the password ok, but when I try to log back in, I am not able to. Is there a way to reset it back to the default password or change the admin password?

The McAfee solution is to reinstall ePO (New DB)

I actually have a call in with them. I had to backup the DB and send it to them, which they will repair for me. This is apparently a known issue.

The issue is that I used a password with alt + ### and they don't work with ePo, but the console doesn't give you any warning. It appears to take the password ok, but then effectively locks you out, because it won't accpet the password to log back in.

This was resolved by McAfee support fixing a copy of the database that I sent them. This is a known issue, so hopefully they will get this fixed soon.

I'm going to award the points to Charlie for trying to help. (sorry so slow-I forgot this was open)
