Hi , Hope someone can help.

how do i go about changing the Keystone Admin Pass in Newton.

I observed that in previous releases one would use the keystone CLI command however as this is deprecated in favour of the Openstack CLI command do i just re-bootstrap the admin user ? using the following

keystone-manage bootstrap --bootstrap-password ADMIN_PASS \
  --bootstrap-admin-url http://controller:35357/v3/ \
  --bootstrap-internal-url http://controller:5000/v3/ \
  --bootstrap-public-url http://controller:5000/v3/ \
  --bootstrap-region-id RegionOne

Or is there a specific command that is used to change the admin user password ?

Ok guess ill answer my own question to help anyone in the future who try's googling this.

run the following to change the password of the admin user

openstack user password set --password <new-password> --original-password <current-admin-password>

If you wish to change a service user password such as glance or a demo user run the following

openstack user set --password-prompt glance


Kind Regards

Please make sure that the OpenStack OS_* environment variables are set before you run the openstack command.
