(*Sorry to be long winded, but I guess detail counts*)
We had the perfect storm...network wise anway. Our cumpuattional culster was doing a huge data-push, while there was a deep SARA scan going on. The little 4003 was not able to take the beating from both sides and crashed.
When we it rebooted, everything seemed to be fine. All the VLANs were intact, the servers saw one another, access semed to be restored. I just couldn't log into the server. I have the right password, but it isn't accepting it. I can access the switch, still running COS 7.1 (I know, I know...I have a 4503 in the wings as a replacement), but only with SNMP. The community strings seem to have been reset to the default.
I know how to do a password recovery/reset, but I am unable to do a reboot till next week. That being said, this is a gaping security hole, and my ISSO knows about it. Is there a way to either set the community strings properly or totally deactivate SNMP, via SNMP. Take into consideration, I am a total Noob to SNMP other than setting the strings.
Any advice would deeply be apreciated.
