SSH Enable password

When trying to get to enable mode on a 3200 controller I am prompted for a password which I never set. Is there a way around this? How can you set the ssh enable password via CLI? WEBGUI?

 

thx

Probably the default password is "admin" or "enable".

You can set it with the following command:

conf t

enable secret

(first you need to enter the enable password to get privileged access)

Re: SSH Enable password

To reset the enable password if you don't know it; you'll need console access to the controller and follow these steps:

 

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

Password: enable

(aruba) #exit

(aruba) >exit

 

Log back in as your normal admin account and test that the enable password is reset to enable.  You can then use the "enable secret" command to set it to something you want:

 

(aruba) #configure terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z
(aruba) (config) #enable secret

Password: <new enable password>
Re-Type password: <new enable password>
(aruba) (config) #write memory

 

You can use this same procedure to reset the root admin password as well.  To do so, you'd run the following:

 

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>
(aruba) (config) #exit
(aruba) #exit
(aruba) >exit
