Recover or reset admin password for KDC ?


I am trying to unable LLAP in HIVE2 but it is asking KDC admin principal and password. Unfortunately I forgot that so is there anyway where I can recover it or reset it ?

Also if I would reset then will it impact on other services/principal which are dependend on it.

@Saurabh- Would you like to run the below change_password command on the kadmin.local shell. It might work:

[root@ipa1 ~]# kadmin.local
Authenticating as principal admin/admin@EXAMPLE.COM with password.
kadmin.local:  change_password admin@EXAMPLE.COM
Enter password for principal "admin@EXAMPLE.COM": 
Re-enter password for principal "admin@EXAMPLE.COM": 
Password for "admin@EXAMPLE.COM" changed.
kadmin.local: q
[root@ipa1 ~]#
