How we can reset the vapp-service user password on 14.2 version ?
 
Environment:
Ca Identity Suite Virtual Appliance 14..2
Cause:
Developers have implemented the resetVappServiceAccountPassword command in 14.2 
to have the same functionality as HF-INTERNAL-20180214-RECONFIGURE-VAPP-SERVICE-PASSWORD-0001.tgz.gpg in vApp 14.1
 
Resolution:
1. Login to vApp Terminal as "config" user and execute the following command: 

resetVappServiceAccountPassword 

2. Enter a New Password for vapp-service user.
