ASA SSM-10 Need to restore factory defaults

I had a consultant come in and install the IPS on my firewall, well he forget the login password for the SSM-10 IPS and now I can't get into it. I have tried all the hw module 1 restart, reload, config options and have removed the card and looked for a hard reset button but nothing has worked. How do I get into the IPS so I can reset the password?

Re: ASA SSM-10 Need to restore factory defaults

Hi,

The only way is to do a recovery, complete instructions are at:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps4077/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a008045a95f.html

In a nutshell:

1) cable the ssm module to a tftp server (can be via a switch or whatever)

2) issue the hw-module command to do a configure (enter params as prompted)

3) issue the hw-module command to reboot

Note that your tftp server needs to be able to handle files >16MB

HTH - plz rate if it does

Already tried all that, did not work. Am now trying an image upgrade as that sets all passwords to Cisco, Cisco. Thanks though.

The image upgrade is the same process if you don't have the password.....
