rw and admin are not the same, they have different access priv profiles = rw isn't allowed to change the pw of admin.

IF SNMP access is available, there should be a backup/restore configuration wizard. Offload the config, modify it without the Admin parameters under SYSTEM, and the push the configuration back into the 7100.

What version of NMS/XMC are you using?
