After ASA 5505 upgrade, console access requires a user and pw?

I upgraded my 5505 from 8.2(5) to 8.4(7) and now when consoled in it requires a username and password? I had 2 priv 15 users setup, but neither works. I searched the web but I cannot find anything on this, so I humbly turn to the experts...

Marius,

I had tried blank but not the spaces, although that failed as well.

Thanks to both of you!!

Thanks for the rating.

You could check the configuration once you get in to see if there is anything that stands out.

Hi,Go with the password

Hi,

Go with the password recovery and check, what caused the problem....

 

did you noticed any error messages when you reloaded the device with new OS... it would have shown some errors in commands which have not taken.....

 

Also have you tried removing all cables connected to it and do console?
