Unable to change the admin of the virtual PAN OS 9.0 credentials on VMware Lab

L0 Member

Hello Community,

I have set up my Virtual Palo Alto Firewall on a VMware virtual machine. The issue is that when I start the Virtual FW , it asks me for the credentials. I enter admin/admin , then it requests to change the password. I enter the new password/confirm password. After that, when I try to login with the new password, it says " login incorrect" . Whatever new password I added, it does not work. 

Note: This is the first time lab. Any help?

are you able to get logged in the first time and then are failing on the second login and thereafter ?


if you retry admin, does it take that?
