How to deploy password change in BNA?

[ Edited ]

In the "CLI Configuration" feature, where commands can be deployed to multiple devices, I am trying to change the console/username password using the same commands I use when I'm SSHed to one device...

 

username [username] password
[password]

And that works when not using BNA.  Then in BNA, in the CLI configuration the commands look just like that, with the password on a seperate line...

 

 

username test password
[password]

 

But when I deploy, it fails saying...

"CLI command failed : Enter password: Error - password length should be between 8 - 48 characters, for command: username test password"

 

When I go back to SSH and just hit enter when asked for a password instead of entering one, I get the same error.  What is the trick to getting CLI Configuration deployment to see that I'm really entering a password?

Re: How to deploy password change in BNA?

Never mind.  Figured it out.  Had to run the command "no enable user password-masking" first, then do the password change command all on one line.
