2900XL Series password

Hi

I recently started working at a company in CapeTown South Africa, where they have 5 Cisco 2900XL Series switches.

The previouse network administrator left with some sour grape, thus not giving me any info about the switches.

I managed to download Cisco Network Assistant, so that i can discover what the IP address for the switches are so i can manage them, as some of the port seems to be configured to half duplex etc.

However it seems all these switches has passwords on them. How can i access them, or reset the password, without having to completly reset the switches information?

Thanks in advance

Robert

Hi,

Here you go follow this doc:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps628/products_password_recovery09186a0080094184.shtml

NOTE: Don't forget to release the Mode button when the LED above Port1x goes out.

HTH, please rate if it does help,
