Syntax

Reset-MgmtSvcPassphrase [-Confirm] [-ConnectionString <String>] -NewPassphrase <String> -OldPassphrase <String>
 [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]
Reset-MgmtSvcPassphrase [-Confirm] [-Database <String>] -NewPassphrase <String> -OldPassphrase <String>
 [-Password <String>] [-Server <String>] [-UserName <String>] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Reset-MgmtSvcPassphrase cmdlet changes the passphrase on a configuration store.
You must provide the old passphrase in addition to the new passphrase.

The passphrase should have more than eight characters and contain at least one non-alphanumeric character.
Remember to protect the passphrase.
You cannot recover the passphrase.

You can run this cmdlet from any computer in the deployment.
However, this cmdlet assumes that the database is on the local computer.
If the database is on another computer, you must use the Server, UserName, Password, and Database parameters, or a SQL connection string.
If you specify a connection string by using the ConnectionString parameter, that value takes precedence over the Server, UserName, Password, and Database parameters.
