The "cisco" account password should not be disabled.

The "cisco" account (or any other admin accounts) can be used to set a new password for any other account.

Once a new password is created for the account, then the account is automatically re-enabled.


If, however, the "cisco" account itself winds up disabled, or the password is forgotten, then there are specific steps for recovering the password for the "cisco" account:
