Reset Plesk Admin Password from Command Prompt

To get the current 'admin' password for Plesk, execute the following command at a command prompt in windows

"%plesk_bin%\plesksrvclient" -get

%plesk_bin% is something like c:\parallel\plesk\admin\bin

To get the password at command line and save to a file use the -nogui option
"%plesk_bin%\plesksrvclient" -get -nogui > c:\plesk_admin_passwd.txt

To set a new admin password for the Plesk Admin run the following command at a command prompt:
"%plesk_bin%\plesksrvclient" -set mypass true

Where mypass is the new password
