I was sent a 4506 switch from another office with a Supervisor Engine II+. I've never touched a Cisco switch before and the password is unknown. I followed the Cisco document on how to reset the password, which is necessary in order to reset the entire unit to the factory defaults.
When I get to step 4 they instruct you to "make sure" the configuration register is 0x2142 but mine is 0x2141. They don't indicate what to do if the value isn't 0x2142! It seems like the only way to change it is if you have the password, which of course I don't have.
All I want to do is reset the entire switch to the factory defaults. If there is any way to do this without the password then that would be fine with me, but the Cisco manuals seem to indicate that you must have the password.
Thanks in advance.
