To add a new administrator user account with “expert” prompt add following lines to configuration in the CLI shell:
add user NEWUSER uid 0 homedir /home/NEWUSER set user NEWUSER gid 100 shell /bin/bash set user NEWUSER password-hash $1$************ / OR / set user NEWUSER password <ENTER> add rba user NEWUSER roles adminRole
Replase NEWUSER with new administrator’s login name.
This new account will login in “expert” shell and will not need to type additional password.
To access Gaia’s CLI shell user will need to execute /bin/clish
Thanks a ton. You saved my butt here. There is something broken with admins in VSX and this was a great work around.

Thanks for the hint. I’m still missing the possibility for making tacacs users UID 0. CP R&D states that the _nonlocl cannot be changed to this and it’s by design. If you do manually alter the UID nothing is working 🙂
Just a hint if looking in this direction.
