Hi - I have an ACS soultion engine 1111. I've been using it mess around with but now need to return it to stock so need to default it and get rid of the admin account. A TAC engineer has told me I can do this from the CLI but hasn't said exactly how.
Is it possible to return the device to factory defaults from the CLI or do I have to get hold of a recovery CD? The device is running 4.1
Many Thanks in advance
You can not reset the configuration to default in the ACS SE. It's required to use the recovery CD to re-image the Appliance.
When using the commands or the recovery CD:
Attach a DB-9 to RJ-45 adapter to the serial port of the console.
Set your terminal emulation communication software to operate with the following settings:
â¢Baud = 115200
â¢Databits = 8
â¢Parity = N
â¢Stops = 1
â¢Flow control = None
â¢Terminal emulation type = ANSI
You can not set the password back to "setup":
ACS_Console> set admin
Enter old password:
Enter new account name: administrator
Enter new password:
Reenter new password:
Error: Password must be at least 6 characters long.
Does not contain all or part of the user's account name.
Contains characters from three of the following four categories:
* English upper case characters (A..Z)
* English lower case characters (a..z)
* Base 10 digits (0..9)
* Nonalphanumeric (For example, !,$#,)
If you provide the new guy the current user/password, he could reset it using these commands:
- To set the name of the ACS SE administrator, use the set admin command:
set admin [administratorname]
- To set the ACS SE administrator's password, use the set password command.
If not, he would also need the Recovery CD to reset the password.
