Chage HTTP password from Dell Powerconnect 5448 from CLI

We can't login to Dell PowerConnect 5448 from HTTP management page. Fortunately we can access Console and we would like to know how to change password for HTTP management page from Consol. We don't want to factory default the switch.

Thank you.

Configuring an Initial HTTP Password

To configure an initial HTTP password, enter the following commands:

console(config)# ip http authentication local

console(config)# username admin password user1 level 15
Configuring an Initial HTTPS Password

To configure an initial HTTPS password, enter the following commands:

console(config)# ip https authentication local

console(config)# username admin password user1 level 15

Enter the following commands once when configuring to use a terminal, a Telnet, or an SSH session in order to use an HTTPS session.
      NOTE: In the Web browser enable SSL 2.0 or greater for the page content to be displayed.

console(config)# crypto certificate generate key_generate

console(config)# ip https server

When initially enabling an http or https session, enter admin for user name and user1 for password.
      NOTE: Http and Https services require level 15 access and connect directly to the configuration level access.

Thank you for your response. Does this command change the current username and password that was never documented before me.
Also would you tell us how to disconnect users connected through HTTP from console?

Thank you,
