Admin account rename, delete in FAZ 5.4

Hi All,

First of all take note that,

-You cannot change admin username once created.
-An option would be to delete this user and create a different username(See below instructions)

1. If there is only one (the default) admin account existing, with the "super_admin" profile assigned, create a second super_admin account.
2. Close all administrative access sessions, opened with the default admin account (log out from the web admin GUI, log out from the SSH/telnet CLI, etc.).
3. Log in with the new super_admin account.
4. in CLI:

   # config system admin user
  # delete
  # end
