Changing the Product Console Password

The product console password is the primary means to protect Smart Protection Server from unauthorized changes. For a more secure environment, change the console password on a regular basis and use a password that is difficult to guess. The admin account password can be changed through the Command Line Interface (CLI). Use the "configure password" command from the CLI to make changes.


To design a secure password consider the following:

  • Include both letters and numbers.

  • Avoid words found in any dictionary (of any language).

  • Intentionally misspell words.

  • Use phrases or combine words.

  • Use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters.

  • Use symbols.

  1. Log on to the CLI console with the admin account.

  2. Type the following to enable administrative commands:


  3. Type the following command:

    configure password admin

  4. Type the new password.
  5. Type the new password a second time to confirm the password.
