How to reset web console password of a LifeSize Video Conference unit

Searching for this online to resolve a problem with one of these units proved fruitless so I decided to throw this up here for reference and perhaps it will help someone else out in need. The unit in question is a LifeSize Team MP.

  1. SSH to IP or hostname of the unit
  2. Login as
    auto

    using password

    lifesize
  3. Reset the password using the command
    set admin password 12345

    The password can be anything of 0-9 * and # and is truncated if greater than 16 characters

Full reference for the command line interface can be found here on the LifeSize website.
