Default OpenVZ, how to reset

A newbie question:
I have a physical server which has couple of openvz images running. I misplaced the passwords for these images. So I do not have any access to it. Is there a way I can reset the root password of these images.

Any related information will be helpful as well.

You can enter the virtual machines from the host, e.g. like this:
vzctl enter 101
Inside the vm, you can set a new password:
