There could be different scenarios in this situation.
1. If the global security is configured with LDAP, then its good to reset the password with the help of LDAP server admin.

2. If the user registry is set to the "customized registry" then, first disable the security in security.xml file, then make changes in the customized registry file and revert the changes

3. If you are using local OS registry , then you can reset your password there and check login in console.

If at all you are not happy with above scenarios, then its better to Disable the security for the time being and check.This can be achieved by setting " enabled=false"in cell level security.xml

In this scenario, we can user 2 methods.

1. In cell level security.xml file change the 2nd line and "enable=true" change the true parameter as "enabled=false" the restart your Dmgr and login. It will no ask for password.

2. Through WSadmin , we are having an option SECURITY OFF
