Would you please to tell me how to reset admin password in the case of we lose or forget admin password?
Wow that's rough. I used to be able to do that with Cisco from serial console. I have a business customer that we installed their firewall, their network, their internet, etc and corporate forced all locations to use some use some IT company from the other side of the country (near headquarters) and at one point the IT company got the password from the local branch manager. Once they gave it to them the password was changed and we could no longer manage it for them and the local branch manager was never told what it was changed to. Now corporate fired that IT company and the password they said they changed it to doesn't work...yes, wrong
This is a good idea , but the problem remains unsolved ,how to break admin password on Windows ?I suggest to keep regular off-site backups of your working configuration, and always keep a second administrator account so that there is no one person that has access to the important devices.
It would be great if there was an option to reset admin password. This happens a lot as far as I knowI suggest to keep regular off-site backups of your working configuration, and always keep a second administrator account so that there is no one person that has access to the important devices. Once there is something wrong this the second account, you can reset it with the initial admin account.
That is a good option, but of course that will only work (to solve problems as described above) when it is in the default configuration.You can make a user with no password, and no rights to "ssh, web, winbox, telnet" only "local" (console). This basically solves your issue.
