Change Password of FirePOWER module in ASA

Hi Guys, 

I cannot seem to find any guide anywhere but how do you change the 'admin' password NOT the registration password for the ASA SFR Module?

Hi LJ,

According to the config. guide, this is the procedure for resetting the admin password:

Reset the Password

If you forget the password for the admin user, another user with CLI Configuration permissions can log in and change the password.

If there are no other users with the required permissions, you can reset the admin password from the ASA. The default password differs based on software release; see Defaults for ASA FirePOWER.

Before You Begin
  • In multiple context mode, perform this procedure in the system execution space.

  • The password-reset option on the ASA hw-module and sw-module commands does not work with ASA FirePOWER.

Procedure
Reset the module password for the user admin to the default:

session {1 | sfr} do password-reset

Use 1 for a hardware module, sfr for a software module.

I have verified this command works, and resets the SFR module admin password back to Admin123

session sfr do password-reset

SFR version 6.1.0
ASA version 9.6.2.7

Confirm for: Cisco ASA 5525
SFR: 6.5.0.4

ASA: 9.14.1
Login into ASA CLI, enter: session sfr do password-reset

next: session sfr console

Login in with admin/Admin123

In sfr console enter: configure

next: password

Change password to a new one.
