Reset ASA password

hi all,

sorry if i sound a noob here, but i was playing around with my 5505 and configured passwords on it.

i want to remove them since it's a lab FW but to no avail.

is there a command to remove or reset them back to blank like a no enable password in router IOS?

for now i just did a write erase and got them removed.

ciscoasa(config)# no passwd 2KFQnbNIdI.2KYOU encrypted

ciscoasa(config)# no enable password 2KFQnbNIdI.2KYOU encrypted

                                     ^

ERROR: % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

ciscoasa(config)# sh run

: Saved

:

ASA Version 9.0(1)

!

hostname ciscoasa

enable password 2KFQnbNIdI.2KYOU encrypted

passwd 2KFQnbNIdI.2KYOU encrypted

ciscoasa(config)# clear en ?

ERROR: % Unrecognized command

ciscoasa(config)# clear p?

exec mode commands/options:

  pclu       phone-proxy    pim    priority-queue

  process

Hello,

There is no such command,

The only thing you can do is to overwrite it,

Reset ASA password

hi,

i suspect that as well even though i did a write erase, it still shows the hashed passwords with show run.

but i can go directly to privileged mode without an enable password.

Hello John,

Exactly, cosmetic does not look good right but that's just how the ASA looks with the enable password hashes
