6500 Password Recovery

I have found password recovery procs for the route processor of CatOS (6500) but not for the switch processor. Would they be the same if I do the break sequence before it says 00:00:03: %OIR-6-CONSOLE: Changing console ownership to route processor.

Thanks.

Re: 6500 Password Recovery

Hi there,

The password recovery for the SP is different than the password recovery for the RP, here you are the one for the SP:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_password_recovery09186a00801349aa.shtml

Take care that you have a window of 30 seconds to do it, i failed it the first time i tried it, try using a simple password at first may be a single letter password or simply a null.

HTH, please rate if it does help,

Mohammed Mahmoud.
