       set override-login-password-change [enable|diable]
       set login-password-change [yes|default|no]
       set login-password <string>
    next
  end
  config extender-controller extender-profile
    edit "FX201E-default"
        set login-password-change [yes|default|no]
        set login-password <string>
    next
  end
Parameter Description
set login-password-change [yes|default|no]

Use one of the following options:y

  • yes — Change the administrator login password of the FortiExtender.

  • default — Keep the managed FortiExtender administrator password set to the factory default.

  • no — Do not change the administrator login password.

set override-login-password-change [enable|diable]

Enter either of the following:

  • enable — Override the administrator login password setting in the profile.

  • disable — Use the administrator login password setting in the profile.

Note

In earlier releases of FortiOS, there is a "set login-password" command in extender entry, but there are no override and login-password-change attributes. If you have an configured your administrator login password in an earlier version of the FortiOS, the "login-password-change" attribute will be set to "yes" and your login-password will remain the same as before after upgrade.
