CSS 11050 trouble getting in

Unanswered Question
Dec 7th, 2007

Hey guys just wondering if any one of you ever get in to this sitaution before ?

I have CSS 11050 running OS: 5.00 build 63. During last change to config some one removed superuser string from local username user. Now I just cant access expert mode and thus cant make any changes. Any ideas or if I can use SNMP to reset it back to what it was. I have RO SNMP string.

Any help would be welcome.



I have this problem too.

Hi Jay,

Honestly I am not sure if this would work for 11050 running 5.0, but I have followed this procedure with a 11500 series, you might want to give it a try:

For password recovery, have a look at this object in the

securitymgrext.mib :

apSecurityMgrUsernameTable OBJECT-TYPE

SYNTAX SEQUENCE OF ApSecurityMgrUsernameEntry

ACCESS not-accessible

STATUS mandatory


"This is the table of username and password pairs used for

local authentication."

::= { securityMgrExt 4 }

It contains the local user accounts, and they are (individually)read-write. You need to know

the community string for this to work and have enable read+write snmp.

Hope it helps
