Re: Can't change the user "admin" password

Hello Yuen,

Most likely you have a user “admin” in the admin mode but trying to change it in normal mode. Hence the system thinks you want to add yet another “admin” user.

May you verify it using “admin show run”? if the username is there, go to admin mode first before changing the password.

Regards,
