    To reset the administrative password:

    1. Access the Gateway main menu for your form factor: appliance or software.
    2. Access the password reset option as follows:
      • For Appliance Gateways, select option 2 (Display CA API Gateway configuration menu) and then option 8 (Reset Admin password).
      • For Software Gateways, selection option 6 (Reset Admin password).
    3. Enter the administrative user name.
    4. Enter the new administrative user password. The password is reset.
