Reset Local Administrator Password for Azure VM

Recently I had set up quite a couple of VMs in Azure and one of the VMs local administrator’s password I’ve keyed in wrongly and totally forgotten what is it anymore.

So in the Azure new portal there’s a feature to reset the password.

Local Administrator username : bkhoo

The steps taken are as below :


    • On the left menu bar click on the Virtual Machines
    • In the Virtual Machines, select the specific Virtual Machine that want to reset the local administrator password.


    • In the settings menu on the right, click Reset password .


    • Key in the new password and confirm password, then click on Reset 

    Then I test it, I can now RDP into the VM using the new reset password .
