Hi eveybody, I bought myself via Ebay a Cisco 5505 for training purposes. Unfortunately the Switch is coming from a multinational company and has still a configuration with access to TACACS server installed. Nobody could give me the local administrator password.
But the biggest problem is that it looks like I can't access the console port ! Connecting a cable using standard cisco settings doesn't allow any access. No echo on my screen !
Does anybody know How I could get access to this Switch ? I do not need to worry about the actual configuration. I need a way to run a factory reset procedure.
The Switch is a Cisco Catalyst 5505, with 2x WS-X 5225R (10/100 Ethernet) and 1x WS-X 5530 Management.
the straight cable is working. I thought I read something about different cabling somewhere but I couldn't find another cable within the whole cisco network to buy.
So I got the connection, but the Ciscio is never asking during bootup for a Password. I saw that after loading the bootimage bootflash .bin, I have a message Finish programming successfully Altera 10K50 SRAM EPLD.
If I remember well, during the first 30 seconds or the first minute the 5500 has no password. So login in the console, after the password prompt just type enter. You must have access to the main CLI, type enable and enter.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
