Recover Password of IPS module (ASA)

Dear Expert,
 
I have an ASA 5500 series with AIP SSM (IPS module), the login name and password are lost.
 
According to the cisco portal, there are two approaches to recover the password:
1. using CLI command: hw-module module slot_number password-reset;
2. using ASDM --> tools --> "IPS password reset"
 
Not sure both commands to achieve the same result (recover password) or they may have different outcome (i.e. need to reset the module).
 
The device is on line, reset module is not prefered.
 
After checking some information from internet, it suggests to reset the IPS module. Any problem will be occurred if the IPS module is not reset?

Hi Anita, You can try using

Hi Anita,

 

You can try using:

hw-module module slot_number password-reset

 

That will just reset the IPS to its default user/password:

cisco and cisco

 

You can access the IPS from ASA CLI:

session 1

Then type cisco and cisco (user/password)

So you could add a new password.
