Basically a Galera Cluster is bunch of MySQL nodes working together in synchronous replication. The user credential is common to all (Ideally of-course)! Let’s see how straight  forward it is to reset password on a Percona Xtradb Cluster lab.

To reset the root password on a standard MySQL instance you may choose either of init-file or skip-grant-tables way. Read More

Fixing inconsistency on MySQL Slave of Galera Cluster
