Article Summary: This article provides the necessary steps to add or change the Privileged Exec password from the web interface.
Discussion: Some firmware releases may not have required an enable password to be set when using telnet or SSH for switch management. If firmware is upgraded such that an enable password is required, it can be set via console or via the web interface. This article outlines the procedure for setting the enable password via the web interface.
1. Open the Dell OpenManage Switch Administrator web interface by entering the IP address of the switch in your web browser. Expanding the directories can be done by clicking on the title of each directory, clicking on the + symbol to each category’s title, or clicking directly on each of the options within the main window.
2. Navigate through: System > Management Security > Enable Password
3. Enter a new Enable password and click Apply.
4. Save the configuration: Click on the diskette icon at the top of the window and acknowledge the warning.
