Password Change

Jump to solution

1. What is the difference between set expert-password, set expert-password plain, and passwd <username>  Which would I use?

2. I need to change the expert password (bash) and the clish password, right?  to do that I would run the syntax from above for the expert password. And for the clish password I would run "set user <UserName> newpass <new password>", correct?

I want to do this over the CLI. This is for the admin password.

Hello,

Please find answers to your questions below:

1. "set expert-password" and "set expert-password plain" are essentially the same command (the only difference is that the first is used for R75.45 and above whereas the latter is for the R75.40 and R75.40VS versions (see sk71521 for more information). passwd on the other hand is used to change the account password of a specific user and it is not related to the expert mode.

2. If you want to set the expert password just use the "set expert-password" command. If you want to reset it, please follow sk92347.

I hope this helps.

set expert-password sets the password needed to go from clish to the expert shell and has zero relation to any user account password.
If you want to change the admin account password, the command from clish is set user admin password.
Do not use the passwd command from expert shell.
