IPS password reset via ASDM

The username/password has been lost to our IPS module.

I used the ASDM menu option to reset the IPS password but nothing happened other than the IPS module resetting.

Is there something more I need to do to reset the password on the IPS module other than selecting "reset IPS" in ASDM?

Tks

Re: IPS password reset via ASDM

No is does not wipe the config, it just resets the module and next time you login with the default username and password

Please do put the results so as to help others, researching on similar topics

Re: IPS password reset via ASDM

For IPS (AIP-SSM) v5.0 you have to do complete recovery of the module to reset the password, but for IPS (AIP-SSM) V6.0 and above you can do that from command line using command.

CiscoASA#hw-module module 1 password-reset

With IPS (AIP-SSM) v5.0 on the ASA the command will still be applicable but will end up giving following error message.

The SSM application version does not support password reset
Failed to reset the password on the module in slot 1

Thanks,

I have IPS ver 6.0 (6)E3

Hardware is ASA-SSM-20

PRODUCTION-ASA# hw-module module 1 password reset

Does this just reset the password on the IPS module and NOTHING more or does it wipe the IPS config also?

Thanks again

Re: IPS password reset via ASDM

Tasks and results

PRODUCTION-ASA# hw-module module 1 password-reset

PRODUCTION-ASA# sess 1

Card in slot 1 did not respond to session request

WAIT 5 MINUTES

PRODUCTION-ASA# sess 1

Change password prompt appears.

The password I entered was refused, then received following error:

Authentication token manipulation error

Remote card closed session

Command session with slot 1 terminated

PRODUCTION-ASA# sess 1

Change password prompt appears.

MUST enter current password first  (I.E.cisco), enter, enter your new password.

Only issue is now the username is the default --- Cisco

Must manaually change the username.
