Reset Airwave Root Password via CLI

Is it possible to reset the Root Password for Airwave via CLI? 


I found the following link on the boards which references the steps if password is unknown. What if the password is known. Is there another process to reset via CLI?

If the password is known, you can simply login as the root user and then do:

# passwd root

This will prompt you for the existing password and then twice for the new password.
