You can change the etcd password at any moment. Follow these instructions:

  • Connect to the server through SSH.
  • Run the command below. Remember that CURRENT_PASSWORD is a placeholder, replace it with the current password in use.

    $ etcdctl -u root:CURRENT_PASSWORD user passwd USER

    You will be prompted to change the password. Enter the new password you want to use.
