Resetting enable password

Hi, I just ran the startup wizard on our new Aruba 3200 controller and somehow managed to type the enable password wrong two times in a row. Now I'm unable to get in enable mode. I tried logging in with "password" and "forgetme!", I can login to enable mode with these credentials, but I'm unable to reset the enable password.
Any thoughts? ;)

do the following:

Log using the following:


User: password
Password: forgetme!
Enable
Enable
Config terminal
Mgmt-user admin root
Exit
Exit
Exit

Login again using the admin account with theadmin account
use the password enable for the enable feature

Re: Resetting enable password


Nope... when I login to the controller with password/forgetme! I don't have enough permission to change the enable secret.

(Aruba3200)
User: password
Password: *********
(Aruba3200) >enable
Password:******
(Aruba3200) #configure terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z

(Aruba3200) (config) #enable secret
Password:*****
Re-Type password:*****
You do not have permission to execute the command: enable secret

(Aruba3200) (config) #




do the following:

Log using the following:


User: password
Password: forgetme!
Enable
Enable
Config terminal
Mgmt-user admin root
Exit
Exit
Exit

Login again using the admin account, use the password "enable" for the enable feature
then you can type:

conf t
enable secret
Password:

Re: Resetting enable password

Will this work on any Aruba Networks controller or does it have to be configured for this? I have attempted this and I am unable to log in with the user password/forgetme!

You have to do this from the console of the controller.
