Changing the admin account password in Fortigate


Changing the admin account password in Fortigate Firewall using CLI :- 

  • The default administrator account, named admin, initially has no password.
  • This administrator account always has full permission to view and change all FortiWeb configuration options, including viewing and changing all other administrator accounts.
  • Its name and permissions cannot be changed.
  • Always configure the admin account with a password to prevent others from logging in to the FortiWeb and changing its configuration.

Lets see the configuration.

FortiGate # config system admin
FortiGate (admin) # edit admin
FortiGate (admin) # set password Pass@123
FortiGate (admin) # end

Fortigate admin password cli
Fortigate admin password cli
