Cisco ASA: How To Reset The IPS Module Password

I came to a customer that needed some IPS help in their ASA.  They happened to not know the password to get into the IPS module.  So, I needed to reset it.  Here is what I did, in the ASA, to reset the IPS module.  It does reset the IPS module when you do this, so if you have a 'fail close' scenario, keep that in mind.
ASA(config)# hw-module module 1 password-reset

Reset the password on module in slot 1? [confirm]  <-- hit enter
