I need to break into a 2901 router to recover the passwords. Cisco's methodology for password recovery on 2900 seriews routers
says to remove the compact flash card and reboot into RMON. There is no external compact flash card on a 2901. Is there a
compact flash card inside the box? Or can you use the older method of rebooting and then hitting ctl+break to boot into RMON?
There is no external compact flash card on a 2901.
Yes there is. It's hidden underneath a dust cover at the back (opposite side of the power outlet).
There should be TWO CF slots. Just pop the "0".
