IDS V4.1 , access through console port problem issue

I was able to access Cisco IDS 4215 v4.1 at work (production device) through WebUI, and Telnet.

Recently I have modified the interfaces int0, int1 only, then I could not access through WebUI nor Telnet.

When I tried through Telnet I received this error :

<quote>

Error: Cannot communicate with system processes. Please contact your system administrator.

When I tried through the web browser (https://ip address) it stuck with the below message:

<quote>

Login successful

Please wait while IDM loads.........

The last resort to access it through console port, (The username's administrator for webGUI is :xxx and password : xxx)

When I tried to use the above username and password for console :

legolas login: xxx

Password:

It gave me the error below :

The error message for Telnet is same error for console connection ?

any clue about this issue.I do not like to think about reseting the IDS (only as last resort), because it is production one.

Re: IDS V4.1 , access through console port problem issue

Normal user accounts logging in via the console or telnet get a special shell that requires some IPS specific processes to be working correctly (they aren't in your case). You need to login using the service account, which has a normal shell. Have you configured a service account? If you have not, you can probably do a hard reboot and then login using the normal user account. Create a service account afterword though...it comes in handy.

Have you configured a service account?

I have not created that , because I had the IDS was configured already.

If you have not, you can probably do a hard reboot and then login using the normal user account. Create a service account afterword though...it comes in handy.

What you meant by normal useraccount ,,,,default which is cisco ? the account that I have mentioned in my early thread ?

Re: IDS V4.1 , access through console port problem issue

yes, I mean a normal user like the default cisco user. In order to create a user with the service role, the user you login as needs to have "Administrator" access (which the default cisco user has).
