I am trying to reset the password for another admin account on an Extreme x460-48p running IMG:

when I type
configure account <other_admin>  
It asks me for the Current user's password: however when I put in my password it says incorrect password for . So I am guessing they want me to put in the other admin accounts password but I can't as they forgot it. So my question would be do I have to delete the account in order to reset another admin's password?

Hi Josh,
Unless you're using RADIUS, the only way to reset a password for another user is to delete the account and re-create it.
