try this 10g solution...for resetting..
Open NQSConfig.INI file
Go to Security part and find AUTHENTICATION_TYPE = BYPASS_NQS;
Uncomment (remove #) this part.
Stop the BI Server service
Close Administration Tool, if opened. (Then only the changes are affecting to the Administration Tool)
Open Administration Tool, then rpd which needs password reset, in offline mode
Give any password, it accepts.
Now go to Manage > Security.
From here it’s the normal process how you change password.
Save the changes to rpd
Revert back the changes in NQSConfig.INI
Start BI Server and open rpd with new password.

I have forgotten Obiee11g rpd password,how can i bypass or reset password..
I stand corrected..rmoff was correct, you are screwed .!
BTW that doc should apply for Windows command line too instead of bi-init.sh you should run bi-init.bat How ever you still need the old pwd--

A release 11g repository can only be opened with the password. There is no mechanism for recovering a lost password.

looks like there is a way to recover the lost passwords for RPD's using listcred() method of wlst
look at the following doc http://www.rittmanmead.com/2011/04/oracle-bi-ee-11g-migrating-security-credential-store-part-3/
Listing the Credential in Dev Environment:
All the Credential Keys are generally stored in an encrypted format (the passwords). So, to migrate we will need to first extract these passwords and then do the migration to Production. The passwords can be extracted through the listCred() method of WLST. We need to be connected to the Admin Server for this method to work. The exact command is given below
This will show the encrypted password entered inside the key as shown below
And this is what we see in the enterprise manager.
As you see, with listCred we are able to extract the full credentials. Now, lets try to see what is the default password for the BISystemUser.
In the same way lets extract the passwords of the SampleAppLite repository.
With this we can even extract the lost Repository passwords."
i am going to try it out now
