- Cisco Employee,
Unfortunately I forgot the password for IME. Is there any way to recover it?
To recover the IME password, follow these steps:
Step 1 Stop the IME client.
Step 2 Delete the hosts.cfg file from the installed directory.
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Cisco Systems\IME\iev\hosts.cfg
Step 3 Restart the IME client.
Step 4 You are prompted to create a new password.
No events are lost from the database, including new events between the time you deleted hosts.cfg and restarted IME. However, the event account username and password will be used for both events and configuration. If you had different usernames and passwords for the event and configuration roles, you must edit each device to restore them.
Hope that answers your query.
