I recently followed the password recovery for a catalyst 4506 switch. Everything went ok but when I enter enable mode I don't get the # at the end. When I try to run configure terminal I get the error listed below. I need to know why the # is missing but I am in enable mode and why I can't use configure terminal.
Console> (enable) configure terminal

Royal is correct that is a catos prompt so you need to know catos and all the "set" commands in order to configure . This has to be one of the early 4506's if it is a 4506 and not a 4006 as most 4506's are IOS based . The early ones did come with a sup II which was catos based. The other answer to your question that may be in your head is no you cannot change it to IOS without a new supervisor card. If you do a "show mod" you will see it is a SupII module and what versions software , it will be like 7.6.17 instead of like IOS where it a 12.2.25EWA10 or whatever.
