Reset SharePoint Passphrase, if you forgot

I needed to add new Web Front End to SharePoint farm and I panicked when I couldn’t remember the Passphrase. Luckily, I could reset it.  Here’s the PowerShell command that will reset your SharePoint Passphrase:

$passphrase = ConvertTo-SecureString -String “securepassword” -asPlainText -Force

Set-SPPassPhrase -PassPhrase $passphrase -Confirm

Enjoy SharePointing!
