I last logged into our VM-300 on friday 23rd August to make a SSL Decryption config change and attempted to login again yesterday. However all of a sudden my admin password doesn't work. I'm the only one who knows the password anyway, so no one else has access to it. There are two admin accounts and neither password works now. The only account that still works is the service account for our Aruba wireless, however that doesn't have admin access anyway so is useless to me in real world use. The admin interface is now accessible outside of my organisation, and internally only a handful of computers have access to that vlan anyway.
Does anyone have any advice? I'm running 8.1.9 and this update was installed before my last successful login attempt
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just an update to this.
Can confirm that no passwords were changed. Passwords were set to expire every 90 days(and it had been 90 days since we setup the firewall). However rather than alerting me, the date just passed and the password expired, locking me out.
So friday evening I'm doing a factory reset, importing the config again & then creating a new admin account(plus modifying the password expiration time).
Should the firewall have alerted me on login that the password was about to expire?
