While trying to change the admin password from GUI, an error occurs: -- Authentication failed: Password expired. Update password via /mgmt/shared/authz/users.
GUI password change fails.
-- Change the password for the root user the first time, before the admin password has been changed. This action sets both the root and admin password at the same time. -- Navigate to the GUI and attempt to update the admin password.
You can use either of the following workarounds: -- Change the password admin via the GUI before changing the root admin via ssh. -- After changing the root password, use tmsh to set the admin password using the command: modify auth user admin password.
