changed paswd on ASA5505

new to both Linux and Rancid, I changed password on Cisco 5505 now my Rancid server is giving me an email alert telling me it hasn't reported back in over 24 hours.

I'm assuming it's the password change.

Pls help in explaining where its looking for a password and being very new the commands to change the password to the new one so it can check back in and backup the config.

You can change password using "passwd" command, as follow:
passwd <username>
For root user,
passwd root
If you're not logged in as root user, then you'll need to do sudo, as follow:
sudo passwd <username>
Enter your password:    (Here enter your own password)
New password:
Confirm password:
