I've got a big problem I can't solve on a cisco switch 2950.
This morning, I've got to configure an already used switch 2950. There's a password nobody can remember. I try to follow the way I saw on the cisco website on how to erase the password on a switch. But I must have made an error. Here's what I did.
In user mode ( switch> ), I hold on a few seconds on the mode button. Some led started to blink a few seconds. When the Start led goes green and the Syst led goes on blinking amber, I hold back the mode button. On hyperterminal, there were a few sentences :
00:10:29: %EXPRESS_SETUP-6-CONFIG_IS_RESET: The configuration is reset and the s
ystem will now reboot
00:10:30: %SYS-5-RELOAD: Reload requested
I waited more than 5 minutes but nothing happened and the switch didn't reload. So I power off the switch and after a few seconds I power it up.
But the swith didn't react as I wanted. There's no more prompt on Hyper Terminal, there's nothing writing on the screen and the switch didn't react when I stroke the keyboard (space or enter or ctrl+break, ...). The Syst Led blinks amber and the Stat Led is green. When I plug on an ethernet cable from a computer, the led is amber.
Do you have any idea on way to bring the switch back to life ?
