Muhammed,


First of all you will need a terminal emulation tool like Teraterm, putty or SecureCrt. The application must support SSH.


When you lunch the application, eg for teraterm, select ssh and enter the ip address of the Callmanager there.


It will ask you for the username and password. Enter the username and password.


This will take you to the cli. Once you are there you can use the following command to change the password


To reset the GUI administrator account name:

utils reset_ui_administrator_name


To reset the GUI administrator password:

utils reset_ui_administrator_password

Deji, he's using a windows based CUCM, the other post already has the instructions on how to reset the password


if you're not using MLA then use the same credentials as your server OS

Jamie,


His callmanager version is 6.X. What I guess he is saying is that the callmanager is connected to a monitor.


So I dont think its a windows based CCM

at this point i believe no one know what he's using, look at this from the question:


"i have my call manager connected to a windows based monitor... so its not linux machine hence it does not gives me a direct CLI to change passwords or enter commands..."


a 6.x would only give the cli waiting for the user to type in user and pwd. but he says that with the monitor connected to the server he does not get a CLI


the real question would be if he's getting a GUI or a CLI to really determine the version because we're assuming he knows the version from the box he has. it might not even be a CUCM for all we know.
