FortiSwitch Managed By FortiOS 6 – Changing the admin password on the FortiGate for all managed FortiSwitch units

Changing the admin password on the FortiGate for all managed FortiSwitch units

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

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 no password set; otherwise, your previously set password will remain in the FortiSwitch. For example:

config switch-controller switch-profile edit default set login-passwd-override enable unset login-passwd

next

end
