OPERATION SYSTEM: OS X El Capitan resets password to iCloud’s

2015-Oct-18

Upgraded to OS X El Capitan.

Ran for about an hour and then wouldn’t let me sign on to my primary id.

Argh!

Luckily, I have always followed a rule of thumb with all OS’, “create multiple admin and regular User accounts”.

So I was able to log on an alternate administrator account, so the problem was limited to the MAIN administrator account.

I could not reset the MAIN admin account from the ALTERNATE admin account.

Strange?

So since I use LASTPASS and keep all my old passwords, I just found the prior one which was the ICLOUD password.

Bingo that was it.

So, make sure you know that one, because OS X El Capitan resets it back when you upgrade.

I guess that’s a “feature”.

Argh!
