switch-controller switch-profile

By default, each FortiSwitch has an admin account without a password. You can use the following command to replace the admin passwords for all FortiSwitches managed by a FortiGate.

config switch-controller switch-profile
    edit {name}
    # Configure FortiSwitch switch profile.
        set name {string}   FortiSwitch Profile name. size[35]
        set login-passwd-override {enable | disable}   Enable/disable overriding the admin administrator password for a managed FortiSwitch with the FortiGate admin administrator account password.
        set login-passwd {password_string}   Login password of managed FortiSwitch. size[64]
    next
end

Additional information

The following section is for those options that require additional explanation.

Removing a password override

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

end
