changing user password on PIX

Hi,

The aaa authenticatin on the PIX is enabled and to use the LOCAL user database.

A user is created (username ABC password XXX privilege 15) on the device.

What's the command for user ABC to change his password?

Thanks.

Re: changing user password on PIX

Hi,

There is no mechanism on the PIX that will change the password of a locally created user short of re-entering the same command as above with a different password. For instace, 'username ABC password YYY privilege 15) should overwrite the previous entry and the new password will be in effect for the next login. Hope this helps.

Re: changing user password on PIX

I tried that but I got an error:

"Username exists. Only privilege level can be updated for existing usernames.

Username addition failed."

Any idea? It's on a PIX525 v6.2(2)

Re: changing user password on PIX

did you try first remove it and then add again with new password?

Re: changing user password on PIX

Ahh, sorry. I should have tried this first. Looks like you need to remove the user first and then re-add the username with the new password. Here is an example of what I did:

pix(config)# username scott pass cisco123 priv 15

pix(config)# sh user

username scott password qiNfscBWWgWEDj9D encrypted privilege 15

pix(config)# no user scott

pix(config)# username scott pass test priv 15

pix(config)# sh user

username scott password GjjKvT2KebeRL0XW encrypted privilege 15

pix(config)#

Sorry for the confusion. Hope this helps.

Scott
