6500 Password Recovery

Answered Question
Apr 23rd, 2007
User Badges:

I have found password recovery procs for the route processor of CatOS (6500) but not for the switch processor. Would they be the same if I do the break sequence before it says 00:00:03: %OIR-6-CONSOLE: Changing console ownership to route processor.


Thanks.

Hi there,


The password recovery for the SP is different than the password recovery for the RP, here you are the one for the SP:


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_password_recovery09186a00801349aa.shtml


Take care that you have a window of 30 seconds to do it, i failed it the first time i tried it, try using a simple password at first may be a single letter password or simply a null.


HTH, please rate if it does help,

Mohammed Mahmoud.
