The Parmaster account is the original sys-admin account and is required for performing advanced tasks on the appliance, including adding more sys-admin accounts.
If the password has been forgotten what methods are there for retrieval?
If another account has sys-admin privileges they can log into the /admin interface and reset the parmaster password.
If a CLI administrator account was created that can be used to reset the password. The command might look like this.
ssh -i [keyfile] [userid]@[PAR-address] changeadminpassword parmaster
In TPAM 2.5.x there is option to reset the parmaster password via the Kiosk console. The user needs to connect directly to the appliance (or via DRAC.)
