i attempted to change the admin password from the default of user: cisco, pass: cisco by using the following command from the terminal command line: hostname(config)# enable password (new password) encrypted
once the command was entered and i wrote it to memory, i logged out of the system and attempted to log back in using the new password and i was unable to login with the new password or the old password. i can even scroll up and see the new password i inputed and even used copy and paste to ensure i wasn't mistyping in the new password. i can no longer access the system at all. any suggestions why i am unable to login with the new password i created?
also i can not use password recovery as it is disabled. and i can't restore the system because it's operational and can not be taken offline.
thanks in advance for your help!
I have this problem too.
