How can I get into the AuthAnvil Manager again? I lost my password.

To gain access to the system without a token, we’ve introduced a new tool in AuthAnvil v4 called the AuthAnvil Management console. 

From the AuthAnvil server:

  1. Make sure that the DNS name in the URL that is defined for the admin web service in the AuthAnvilWebConfigEditor resolves to an IP address that is assigned directly to the server.
    Note: You may need to add a Host File entry for the local IP of the AuthAnvil Server ( will not work). Remote connections are not allowed.
  2. Start Powershell (make sure that you have PowerShell 2.0 installed) and run the script AuthAnvilManagementConsole.ps1 located in "c:\Program Files\Scorpion Software\AuthAnvil\AuthAnvilTools\"

  3. Run the Script as .\AuthAnvilManagementConsole.ps1
    Note: You’ll need to set the PowerShell execution policy to unrestricted if you haven’t already. 
    set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
  4. You should see the following.
    Log into your site as a master admin, using your master admin password when it asks, and choose option 2 – Manage users.
  5. Type in the username, then on the next screen, re-enable his token. You can re-assign tokens and create users as required.
