Hi all.

I have a Cisco 1232 AP at a remote location. It was configured by somebody no longer with the company and I have no passwords for it, no do I have a back up config.

It is using local authenticaiton.

Is there a way to do a password recovery without losing the current configuration?

Thanks for the reply.

So I can't recover the login password without blowing away the config? :(

Thanks for the help.

This looks like it actually erases the config currently on the AP right?

I just want to be able to set new passwords, as I don't have a spare copy of the config.

I will be on site with console access to the AP.

The boot prom supports TFTP, so you should be able to tftp a copy of at least the non-private part of the config file to a server and reload it with the secrets changed after you wipe the AP.

Any private stuff like DSA keys or certs installed there may be lost, though.
