Cisco ASA 5515 default login

I have an ASA 5515 and I was able to get into it with ADSM and I was able to reset the config to factory defaults so I can repurpose the device.

When going back in after the reset, the usual cisco/cisco username and password are not working.

I added the device cert to my java cert list, added the site to trusted site, etc but it keeps prompting me for the username and password when i enter the default of cisco/cisco.

Thoughts?  By the way, CLI is not an option for me.

:)  I'm just throwing that out there.

Thanks

Cliff

Did you get to the ASDM web page? If so, then just click on the Run startup wizard and setup with no username or password.

OK. If you did what you described then it reset the config, not the user accounts. Can you try your user account to see if you can get in?

No user account works, AND, now, after a reboot, the mgt port is showing no connectivity and no activity.  no lights on ASA or switch.  Before reboot, I could get to the https://192.168.1.1 page.  Now, nadda.

I fear I may have hosed it in the middle of the reset, but I did wait 15 mins before power cycle.

It is possible the management port is shutdown but at this point, you will need to get CLI access. I know you stated you don't have it but it is in your best interest to get CLI access for this device.
