FWSM Maintenance Partition

Hi All,

 

Please help on the following queries.

There is a FWSM, which has been there for few years and none of us have the passwords.

To recover the password,

1) Is username & password for maintenance partition always "root" and "cisco"?

2) If they can be changed, how I can recover them? Please advise.

 

Thanks

Hi Lauzamor,

Hi Lauzamor,

 

Many Thanks!

 

I have seen this doc before. So for step 5, the password will always be "password"? We do not have the maintenance mode password.

Router# session slot mod_num processor 1


 

Step 4 To log in to the maintenance partition as root, enter the following command:

Login: root


 

Step 5 Enter the password at the prompt:

Password: password


 

By default, the password is "cisco."

So by default will be cisco, so ahead and try that one.
