Override the admin password for all managed FortiSwitches (416261)

By default, each FortiSwitch has an admin account without a password. To replace the admin passwords for all FortiSwitches managed by a FortiGate, use the following commands:

config switch-controller switch-profile edit default set login-passwd-override {enable | disable} set login-passwd <password>

next

end

If you had already applied a profile with the override enabled and the password set and then decide to remove the admin password, you need to apply a profile with the override enabled and use the unset login-passwd command; otherwise, your previously set password will remain in the FortiSwitch.
