Somehow the rw account has become locked on one of our VSPs and I can’t find any way to unlock it.
Logging in as rw I get the following:
The user rw account is disabled, please contact admin for enabling the account

I am able to log as a different account with RWA permissions, but all I seem to be able to do to the rw account from there is change the password, which does not help.
(Firmware is 126.96.36.199)

The “rwa” account is the highest level of admin control. With the “rwa” user credentials you should be able to make all the changes you need to the other accounts.
Someone probably entered in a “no password access-level rw” to disable the account.
login as RWA and use the command “password access-level rw”
then ‘cli password rw read-write” to change the password back to whatever you want.
WARNING!!!: Use extreme care that you are only changing the rw, ro accounts. RWA accounts passwords can not be recovered and do require an Extreme GTAC ticket and you need a support contract. And the recovery requires a reboot.
