- An extremely important aspect of managing your server is controlling the (Linux) root or (Windows) Administrator account password. You can always reset it through the Rackspace Cloud Control Panel.
Please Note: Changing the server password also initiates a system reboot. Make sure all your configuration changes on your machine have been saved before resetting your password, or they will not take effect.
- You will know the password has been successfully reset when you see a blue bar at the top of your screen indicating the email address that the new password has been sent to, which is always that of the Primary Contact on the account.
