Change SSH password on Cisco 4331 ISR

Hi all,

We've had a Cisco ISR installed and configured for us (a 4331) and the Cisco engineer has set a weak SSH password which i'd like to change. I have setup users on Cisco's before but not actually just CHANGED a password and i can't seem to see how to do it.
Could someone point me in the right direction?

If you are using local accounts for access you just need to issue the same command with new password (depending on login type that you are using).

old password:
username admin privilege x secret Cisco

new password:
username admin privilege x secret Cisco123

or on vty lines

old password:
line vty 0 4
password Cisco

new password:
line vty 0 4
password Cisco123

if you are using RADIUS for login, you will have to change password in RADIUS.

That's worked fine.....thanks
