Resetting the bal user password requires direct console access to the unit. This cannot be done via SSH.
Log in to the console using the following credentials to reset the bal user password to the factory default of 1fourall:
- Username: pwreset
- Password: 1pwreset
Once this is done, you are prompted to enter credentials again. At this point you may enter the username bal and password 1fourall.
If you reboot your unit without modifying the password from this default value it will revert back to the old password.
To Change the bal Password
From the console menu, after logging in with the bal user, navigate to Local Administration.
Select Set Password.
You must enter the old password (default 1fourall) then enter the new password twice.
You can now log int o the Web User Interface (WUI) by using bal with the new password you have just set.
