Reset VNC password for Mac Mini from command line

We have some Mac Minis in our server room and I forgot the VNC password. 

I could connect physically to the machine but I needed a DVI monitor and I did not have one :(


Connect thru putty.exe and use this excellent command:


sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ -activate -configure -access -on -clientopts -setvnclegacy -vnclegacy yes -clientopts -setvncpw -vncpw mypasswd -restart -agent -privs -all
