Is there a way to recover/change an admin password on a WCS server, or is the best bet to uninstall/reinstall WCS. I can't find any documenation on cisco.com mentioning password recovery on WCS. Thanks!
I would open up a Tac case, there is a bug (listed below) that would indicate to me that Cisco may be working on this issue. The current prescribed workaround is, as you noted, uninstall/reinstall;
CSCsg46139 Bug Details
Headline WCS needs password recovery mechanism without losing database
Administrative password to WCS is lost; need to recover access.
Further Problem Description:
It would be nice to be able to recover access to WCS, after a lost password,
without losing the database.
From this WCS doc;
CSCsg46139 If you lose your WCS password and have not backed up your database, there is no mechanism to recover the password.
Hope this helps!
