    Hi @jw708,

    If you have the latest backup configuration file "startup-config.conf", search for the following CLI.

    username admin encrypted-password $4$encryptedpasswordencryptedpassword$ user-type admin


    Then set a new password and replace the following CLI with the original one.

    username admin password yournewpassword user-type admin

    In this example, 12345678 is the temporal password.

    Save and rename startup-config-back.conf. Upload this configuration file to device and apply it.

     

    Here is the procedure.
