 # 1.4.2 - Changing the admin password
 
-TODO
\ No newline at end of file
+This section describes the steps necessary to change the administrator password. Follow the
instructions provided here step by step.
+
+[TOC]
+
+## Step one: Changing the value in the system partition
+
+While the server is up and running, change the value of the _userPassword_ attribute of the
admin (uid=admin,ou=system) via LDAP. There are several ways to accomplish this task. In the
following, we use the Eclipse based Apache Directory Studio.
+
+A new LDAP connection with this tool is created via "New Connection ..." from the _Connections_
view. Enter your connection data in the first step ...
+
+![New LDAP connection](images/NewLDAPConnection1.png)
+
+... and in the next step, enter the admin DN _uid=admin,ou=system_ and the current password
(default is "secret"). Saving the password is not necessary, we will change it anyway. 
+
+![New LDAP connection](images/NewLDAPConnection2.png)
+
+Click _Finish_ to establish the connection.
+
+Afterwards, modify the value of the _userPassword_ attribute of the entry _uid=admin,ou=system_.
Navigate to the entry in the DIT (_LDAP Browser_ view), and double click the attribute in
the _Entry Editor_ view:
+
+![Entry Editor](images/entryEditor.png)
+
+The Password Editor dialog shows up; enter the new password. You can optionally select a
hash algorithm like _SHA_. In this case, the password will be stored one-way encrypted in
the attribute value -- not a bad idea.
+
+![Password Editor](images/passwordEditor.png)
+
+Pressing _OK_ stores the new value. Close the connection and shutdown the server.
+
+## Step two: Verification
+
+Verify that you can login as admin with the new password. With Apache Directory Studio, you
can change the properties of the existing connection profile via a right click in the _Connections_
view and a selection of the _Properties_ menu item. The following dialog appears:
+
+![Connection Properties](images/connectionProperties.png)
+
+Enter the new password and press _OK_. Establishing a connection should now work.
