Clearpass version : 6.6



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.



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



Login with the default credentials to Clearpass web interface.


User: admin

Password : eTIPS123
