ASA 5520 IPS question.

Hi, I just got my ASA 5520 firewall with (ASA SSM-20 module) couple weeks ago, and I am trying to configure IPS features but I getting this problem:

This is output from CLI:

-------------

Asa5520fw# session 1

Opening command session with slot 1.

Connected to slot 1. Escape character sequence is 'CTRL-^X'.

login: cisco

Password:

You are required to change your password immediately (password aged)

Changing password for cisco

(current) UNIX password:

Authentication token manipulation error

Remote card closed command session. Press any key to continue.

------------

I used default cisco / cisco and tried to change to something else or complicate password but keep getting this error.

Thanks,

Re: ASA 5520 IPS question.

the issue maybe related to the length of the password. it must be at least 8-digit long and not a dictionary word.

Also, be sure to use the cisco password again as the "Current UNIX Password"....
