Panorama reset Authentication Profile (Certificate Profile based Authentication) via CLI

L1 Bithead



I have configured (on a test Panorama VM - luckly not on the production one) a SSL Certificate Based authentication following the steps provided on the Panorama Administrator's Guide; somehow It didn't quite worked out and I'm currently locked out.

I do have admin access to the Panorama VM via CLI -> is there any chance to reset the GUI authentication profile to username and password (its default) ? thanks

If you have access to CLI, create a new authentication-profile using the set authentication-profile command.

Then, assign the authentication profile to the user you want to login with using set mgt-config users *username* authenticaton-profile command



thank you for the feedback but this is not really what I'm after.


I would like to enable


However at the very beginning of the Web Page I can read:


"Configuring certificate-based authentication for any administrator disables the username/password logins for all administrators on the firewall; administrators thereafter require the certificate to log in."


I would like to know if there is any possibility to reset the "Certificate-Based Administrator Authentication to the Web Interface" via cli should something go wrong ...


Is this technically possible / supported ?


Thank you fro your feedback.




Have you tried just deleting the certificate-profile you created with "delete panorama certificate-profile" command?
