Hi Srinath,

hopefully, there is no way to get the password from its encrypted form
: this would be a major security breach !

If you have lost your password, there is no other solution than
changing it. If you have lost the admin password, then the only way to
change it is to modify the server.xml file, and to restart the server.

You have to understand that the encyption used for passwords is a one
way algorithm : you can encypt a password, but not decrypt it (only
two-ways algorithms allows such behavior, and it would be a _very bad_
idea to use such an algorithm for passwords...)
