hw-module module slot_number password-reset?This command recovers a password on a Cisco

ASA 5500 Series Content Security and Control Security Services Module (CSC-SSM) or the

AIP-SSM without having to re-image the device.

Note: This command starts support from IPS 6.0 (ASA 7.2 version) and is used to restore

the Cisco CLI account password to the default cisco

The command "hw-module module 1 password-reset" is only supported when the hardware

module is in the Up state and supports password reset.

More information on this command can be found here:

For AIP-SSM you may need to have 6.0 IPS. Also probably 7.2.(2) code would be good.


Do rate if this is helpful :)
