What is the Default admin password for Aruba7010 ?

After did a minimal setup to Aruba controller 7010 I can't access with default username/password (admin/admin).

 

Is the default admin password is different?

The admin password is set when you set it up.  You cannot avoid setting the admin password.

It's a new box. After boot up, Console in and I did a minimal setup. It only ask me for hostname and Country code. It didn't ask for setting up the admin password!

After reboot, I need a username and password. Which I assume it's default but admin/admin is not taking by the controller.

If you're not doing ZTP, you should use the full setup option.

Hmm, I agree that might causing me not able access because I am not setting this up for ZTP. How can I get back to the same previous screen where I do have an option to do minimal setup or full setup for the controller?

Looks like the original question was never answer I am in the same scanerio awaiting response from TAC but it could be helpful to have the answer posted here as well. 

 

I'm stuck after the mini-setup and can't create a new username then save configuration, can't reload the device, can't write erase, so I'm stuck.

If you have console access, you can try to reseting the password.

 

 

Login to the controller using the special password reset credentials

Login:       password
Passwd:    forgetme!

 
User: password
Password: *********

 

 

Enter ENABLE mode

(Aruba7010) >enable
Password: enable

 

 

Enter configure terminal mode and enter this command:  mgmt-user admin root

You should be prompted to enter a new admin password. 
(Aruba7010) #configure terminal
Enter Configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z
(Aruba7010) (config) #mgmt-user admin root
Password:******
Re-Type password:******

 

Once it’s set, back-out of each menu and log out of the controller and login with the new/ reset admin password.

(Aruba7010) (config) #exit
(Aruba7010) #exit
(Aruba7010) >exit
(Aruba7010)

User: admin
Password: ******
(Aruba7010) >

I've tried the moethod you have suggested with no success. I am working with a 7205 but that should not make a difference. I am now getting a password error, I did try long/short password combination so I'm sure this is not the issue .I did however follow the steps you have privided before I received this error with no success.

 

I am scheduled to talk to TAC today or tomorrow was just looking for a quicker resolution.

 

User: password
Password: *********

The password you're trying to use is not complex enough to pass the complexity requirements. Try a stronger password.

I don't think that is the case, I was able to once change it successfully then tried to log out then log back in and it did not work. Since then I always get this error, and I have tried randomly generated password between 15-20 charaters.

When I meet with TAC I will look to posting the resolution to this issue.
