    one of the network administrators just left my company. i have no worries about any sort of an attack from the person, but i need to reset the password on the pix at all of our remote locations. anyone know the procedure to do this? i always forget how different the commands are whenever i move from the routers/switches to the pix/asa.

    any help would be greatly appreciated, next stop is a cisco call.

    are you talking about the enable password? i think on the asa (which should be similar), it's just something like (doing this from memory, so bear with me and use the '?' often) "enable secret <pass> privilege_level 15"

    i could be way off, but i know you have to put a privilege level in there somewhere (or maybe that's just the users?). anyway, the question mark is your friend.

    if you are talking about a username/password, why not just delete this other guy's username? and you might want to look into the cisco ACS software/appliance if you have a lot of people that need access and a lot of devices to manage.
