yes i have seen this same case on ACS also, they try to attempt more than 3 times it locks, you only have option to recover using recover CD. same case with ISE, once it blocked its blocked i guess. (since we always use central authnetication or different admin account to save main user admin account for emergency). ISE has same username GUI and CLI,

 

if you like to add one more user for CLI admin you an use same syntax and test it.

 

"username <username> password plain <cleartext password> role admin"

As I know GUI and CLI user are not the same. Because we have some GUI users and can not open CLI via them.

 

Do you know how long downtime will be while password recovery process?

it take 20-40min as per my experience depends device reboot times

 

here is proceedure.
