I am new to IT, and I want to login to a Fortigate 60D firewall, but I don't know the password. How do I reset the firewall password without resetting the firewall.
Hey you could have just googled that and the first link is your answer. Here.
Do some research before asking please.
Here's the steps in short:
connect to the fgt with a com cable, if not com port then use USB cable with fortiexplorer. Start the console.
reboot the device and wait for it to ask for the username
Type in the username:
The password is bcpb+ the serial number of the firewall (letters of the serial number are in UPPERCASE format)
Note: On some devices, after the device boots, you have only 14 seconds or less to type in the username and password. It might, therefore, be necessary to have the credentials ready in a text editor, and then copy and paste them into the login screen. There is no indicator of when your time runs out so it is possible that it might take more than one attempt to succeed.
- Once logged reset your admin password using:
config system admin
set password <psswrd>
