Answered Question
Nov 16th, 2009

Is it possible to recover the password on the cisco router 1700 series without losing its configuration?

Where can I find the procedure to reset the password?

Thank you in advance.

RC.

No you won't as long as you follow the document. Pay particular attention to step 9 ie.

"Type configure memory or copy startup-config running-config in order to copy the nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) into memory.

Important: Do not type copy running-config startup-config or write. These commands erase your startup configuration."
