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?

This appears to no longer work.

# set mgt-config users testAdmin $hittyP@$$w0rd

Invalid syntax.

the mgt-config command no longer appears to exist.

It seems the account I was attempting it from was a Device Administrator role rather than a superuser.  Once I changed it to Super user, the command is available.
