From the CLI can I update other admin account passwords?

L3 Networker

If so, what is the syntax? I see where i can use the "set password" to update the account i'm currently logged on with. Also, if a use has locked out their account can i unlock it from the CLI?




)# set mgt-config users mmmm2
+ authentication-profile authentication-profile
+ client-certificate-only Is client certificate authentication enough?
+ password-profile password-profile
+ public-key Public RSA/DSA
> permissions permissions
> phash phash
> preferences preferences
password password
<Enter> Finish input


# set mgt-config users mmmm2 phash
<value> phash value




Hi Team,


This is correct syntax



#set mgt-config users admin password
Enter password :------------put new pw
Confirm password :------------confirm new pw


Then do the commit
