Hi Stefan,

please try the following:

  1. Stop the scServer (e.g. through bin/scServer stop for Linux/Unix, or just stop the service under Windows)
  2. Open scServer<version>/engine/etc/snapcreator.properties in an editor
  3. Change SNAPCREATOR_USER and SNAPCREATOR_PASS to your desired values
  4. Start the scServer

The user/password for the SnapCreator admin user should now have been reset to your configured values.

Regards,

Clemens

That did the trick, thank you!

You can also use:

./snapcreator --pwdCrypt

to generate a encrypted password and then use this as value for SNAPCREATOR_PASS.
