Problems After Upgrading to New IOS (12.2.7a) With Passwords

Unanswered Question

Essentially, the title tells it all. After upgrading from 12.0.8 to 12.2.7a, our passwords wouldn't work. Is this because of a different encryption algorithm? We are using the service password-encryption command, and would like to keep it on during our installations.

  • Cisco Employee,

One can only speculate - possibly a bug with the service password-enc command in the new version, possibly a corrupted config file, it is hard to say. I am not aware of any encr. algo. changes.


I would search CCO for known bugs, and/or open a TAC case on this issue. In any case, you can do a password recovery using procedures found on CCO.
