Is there a way to recover of query to get or confirm the security passphrase used during install

So long story short,  I was having an issue with one of the IIS servers and I was installing another one to add to the mix and replace one of the others and it appears during the install process that vCAC believes the security passphrase is different then what I have and I am trying to use. 

Is there a way to make a query somewhere to get that passphrase or is there a way to reset the security passphrase and the encryption key?
