Question about CLI, admin vs full user and web login..

Ok. I cannot login with the admin user to the web interface or cli. I don't know what happened. I am currently using it as testing for some network changes we are doing. (we have 2 sonicwalls..) TZ500's It had been unplugged for a few weeks - I just booted it back up today.

I also have a user that is set to FULL. But that person cannot login to the web interface. Says 'user login not allowed from here' (hooked directly into x0 lan)

I can use my full user to connect cli. So my question is - can I

A) reset the admin password from cli?

2) somehow change the full user access so I can get into the web interface.

C) something I am not thinking of?

(I would rather not reset it to factory)

    You have to factory reset.

    FYI if you set a user as a Full Admin, you have to enable 'allow user logins' on the interface you are trying to login to.

    I got into safe mode - loaded a factory default firmware - then reset the password.

    Seems to be working fine now
