    Unanswered: unable to change password

    I have installed mysql and run the mysql_install_db script. When I try to change the root password I get the following error:

    es01 /opt/bugzilla/mysql$./bin/mysqladmin -u root password s1t8d3l0
    ./bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
    error: 'Access denied for user: 'root@localhost' (Using password: NO)'
    es01 /opt/bugzilla/mysql$

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Gim

    Problem is in wrong syntax.
    Correct syntax is following:
    mysqladmin -u root -p s1t8d3l0
