Lost SharePoint Farm Passphrase

Lost SharePoint Farm Passphrase

Sometimes,Unfortunatly we forgot the pass phrase given, there is no way to get the old pass phrase but we can generate the new pass phrase by using the PowerShell. Follow the below to get the new one.

Make sure that the account you are logged in as:

1.     Farm admin

2.     Local admin on server

Run the following commands to get the new one.

·         $passphrase = ConvertTo-SecureString -asPlainText –Force

·         Set-SPPassPhrase -PassPhrase $passphrase –Confirm
