Do a sh module 1 and paste it on here.

u need to find out what IOS u r running on your ASA and which IPS version is sunning on your AIP SSM module.

if IOS is 7.2(2) IPS versin is 6.0 then hw-module modile 1 password-reset command would work to change username / password back to cicso / cisco

if IPS is 5.0 then ul have to reimage the IPS module.

procedure can be fount at the Command line reference guide for IPS 5.0 ( under reimaging AIP SSM 10 section )

i just had the same problem myself :-)

reate if this post helps.
