3560 password recovery enabled procedures

type this for password recovery.

switch: flash_init
switch: load_helper
switch: rename flash:config.text flash:config.old
switch: boot

after the switch boots and you are at the enable prompt, type this:

switch# rename flash:config.old flash:config.text
Switch# copy flash:config.text system:running-config

Does not work with my 3560

All this seems to me to do is, rename ... then rename back again, the password protected config!

Since all I need to do is flatten the switch, one rename >to config.test.old is fine.

After the config is renamed, it becomes unavailable by default & the switch is unlocked; the switch can then be back-up re imaged or simply re-coded.

Hi,

This is an excerpt from the password recovery procedure:

Issue the dir flash: command.

Note: Make sure to type a colon ":" after the dir flash.

Best regards,
