how to by-pass password on Cisco Security Agent 6.0

Dexter,

Here is a procedure that I used a while back.

######################################################################
Assuming that ALL the usernames and passwords are forgotten, you can do a series of steps to get back access to the MC. Procedure: at the CMD prompt, change directories to   program files\cisco systems\csamc\csamc60\bin then type in:   webmgr interactive then run in succession:   db_exec {delete from session}   db_exec {delete from admin}   db_itrans_commit   exit Then recreate the user by typing in at the prompt:   webmgr newuser <0/1> "" (where is the new username you want to create and is the password for that new user) eg: webmgr newuser admin cisco123 0 "Admin user"           (the description is required !!!) After the password, a "0" means don't enforce the password restrictions, and "1" means enforce strict password requirements.  The description needs to be in quotes, like "this is the admin user" This will create a new admin user with the provided password. Note: At the end of this procedure, all old users would have been deleted. Only the new admin user will exist.
