To restore the admin password on the controller, follow these steps:

  3. Enable the mode password as "enable".
  4. In configuration mode, enter the ‘mgmt-user admin root’ command to reset the admin password.

User: password
Password: forgetme!
(aruba) >enable
Password: enable

(aruba) #configure terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z
(aruba) (config) #mgmt-user admin root

Password: <new admin password>
Re-Type password: <new admin password>
