RADIUS/TACACS+ users fail to change the default admin password when running the First Time Wizard
  • The built-in administrator configures RADIUS/TACACS+ server authentication on the device and grants a RADIUS/TACACS+ user permission to run the First Time Wizard.
  • RADIUS/TACACS+ user navigates to the page "Authentication Details" and changes the default admin password. Changing the default admin password does not take effect after finishing the First Time Wizard.
  • The built-in administrator gets the message "Access denied" when being authenticated with the new password.

The First Time Wizard is configured to change the password of the logged-in user instead of the password of the built-in administrator.
