Ctrl + Break sequence not working

Answered Question
Jan 26th, 2010

I can not get the switch into rommon mode with the Ctrl + Break sequence, any suggestions? It's a 3512 switch. I just reset the password on another 3512 with no problem. ??

I have this problem too.

Thanks, that did the trick. I guess the break key sequence was disabled on this switch? Something I'll have to look into -- I know the key sequence can be disabled on a router.
