Shakil Khan,

You use the failsafe name and password exactly as you would use any other username and password in the configuration.

When prompted for the login name, where you would usually enter admin and its password, enter the failsafe username and password.

There's one notable difference between the failsafe account and the regular ones. The failsafe username and password can be used at the
(Pending-AAA) login: 

When the
Authentication Service (AAA) on the master node is now available for login.
prompt appears, both the failsafe account and the regular accounts can be used.
