ASA default

Unanswered Question
Apr 11th, 2008

When you SSH into an ASA, how do you change the default username of "pix"? In other words, the passwd command changes the password, but how do you change the username?

I have this problem too.

Create a new user and make ssh authentication use local user database...

username admin password xxxxxx priv 15

aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL

Is that the only way? You cant just change the username from the default of pix?

I don't think so...maybe someone else can chime in and confirm.
