Requirement:

Clearpass version : 6.6



Solution:

 

Prior to 6.6 version, we needed to login as an Apprecovery user to reset the admin user password. However, from 6.6 we can reset it being an Appadmin user.



Configuration:

 

Below are the steps to reset the admin password from CLI as an appadmin user,

  • Login as an Appadmin user to CLI
  • Execute the below command to reset the password to default

[appadmin@CPPM-beta-6.6]# system admin-passwd-reset

 

Note: admin-passwd-reset can be executed only on Publisher node



Verification

 

Login with the default credentials to Clearpass web interface.

 

User: admin

Password : eTIPS123
