Reset the instance password

If you did not set a password when creating an instance or forget the password, you can reset the instance password.
  • For Windows instances, the default user name is Administrator.
  • For Linux instances, the default user name is root.

The procedure is as follows:
  1. Log on to the ECS Management Console.
  2. Click Instances in the left-side navigation bar.
  3. Select a region at the top of the page.
  4. Select the desired instance.You can select multiple instances, as long as they are all in the same status.
  5. Click Reset Password.
  6. In the pop-up box, enter the new password and click Submit.
  7. Obtain and enter the verification code sent to your phone. Click OK.
  8. Select the instance with the changed password and then click Restart. Note that the new password will only take effect after the instance is restarted on the console, not within the instance.
  9. In the pop-up box, click OK to restart the instance.
