AIP-SSM password recovery

Our Client is having 2 ASA firewalls ( 5540 ) along with AIP-SSM modules in it . They are configured for Failover . The OS of ASA is 7 and the OS of IPS is 5.0 . I have read on Cisco website that Password recovery cant be done on IPS modules having 5.0 OS . Is there really no way we can recover its password ?

Re: AIP-SSM password recovery

The password recovery feature is only available with version 6.0 and higher.

With the password recovery feature it will reset the cisco user password back to the default and leave all other configuration of the sensor in place.

With version 5.x you will need to re-image the SSM with a System Image and start from a fresh installation and config.

Any existing configuration will be cleared.
