Procedure to change CLI password for admi user

Hello

i have Cisco Context Directory Agent 1.0.0.011 installed by some other team member and i want to reset admin CLI password. Followed up how to reset passwrod (application reset-password cda admin) but i still login with old password.

Can someone provide some docs what would be correct procedure to change/reset CLI password for admin user? This is password configured when original installation is done.

Thanks

Procedure to change CLI password for admi user

The command that you entered: application reset-password cda admin changes the password for the cda application admin only.  This is the WebGUI admin.

To change the password for the CLI, try the command below:

Enter the Configuration mode.

Run the username password plain | hash role admin | user command

For example:  username admin password hash Cisco123 role admin

The words in bold are supplied by you.

Procedure to change CLI password for admi user

Hello,

So, it prompts you to enter the new password but you are still able to login with the old password after changing the password?

When you issue the command above, (and the admin user is exist) it will prompt you to enter the new password. Does it ask you for that?

here is a doc:

Hi Charles,

that did the trick. Is this some "hidden" command or i was not paying attention while reading docs :-)

Thanks.

Procedure to change CLI password for admi user

The documentation only contains the note seen below:


Note The  username and password specified during the initial setup program can be  used for both the CLI and the GUI. If you change the GUI password using  the user interface, the CLI password does not change and vice versa.



The procedure for changing the CLI admin is not documented in the CDA Guide.

However, the command for the CLI admin is pretty universal for Cisco Appliances.

I'm glad this worked for you.
