Resetting Password

The system can automatically regenerate a new, random password for you on demand.  To do so, just click on the "Reset Password" button.  There are two thing to note:

  • As mentioned above, you can only retrieve the new password if you have the private key, stored in the portal or available to upload.
  • Resetting the password will cause the VM to reboot.  

Note:  If you do not store your private key on the portal, make certain that you download it and put it in a secure location. Without your private key, your VM's password cannot be retrieved. If you were to require assistance with your VM and the private key has not been stored in the portal, you will need to supply the password to the support person.
