how to make password recovery for cisco 7604 ??

Hi Ahmed,

Did you follow this document step-by-step?

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps700/products_password_recovery09186a0080133fb1.shtml

  1. Type confreg 0x2142 at the rommon 1> prompt to boot from Flash without loading the configuration.

  2. Type reset at the rommon 2> prompt.

    The router reboots. However, it ignores the saved configuration.

  3. Type no after each setup question or press Ctrl-C to skip the initial setup procedure.

  4. Type enable at the Router> prompt.

    You are in enable mode and see the Router# prompt.

  5. Important: Issue the configure memory or copy start running commands to copy the Nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) into memory. Do not issue the configure terminal command.

  6. Issue the write terminal or show running command.

    The show running and write terminal commands show the configuration of the router. In this configuration, you see under all the interfaces the shutdown command. This means that all the interfaces are currently shut down.You  see the passwords either in encrypted or unencrypted format.

  7. Issue the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode and make the changes.

    The prompt is now hostname(config)#.

  8. Issue the enable secret < password > command in global configuration mode to change the enable password.

  9. Issue the config-register 0x2102 command, or the value you recorded in Step 2 in global configuration mode (Router(config)#) to set the configuration value back to its original value.

  10. Change the virtual terminal passwords, if present:

how to make password recovery for cisco 7604 ??

hi mr reza ,

i read this article many times , but it seems i didnt read the background lines ,

this was my mistake

my problem was the timing of boot interrupting ,

i was supposed to press ctr+ break after the consle message

%OIR-6-CONSOLE: Changing console ownership to route processor

it seems to be my problem

i also made a recovery for 7200 router with no problems , this issue may made a conflict to 7604 cause i though all routers with the same procedure .

any way thanks very much

tomorrow i will try it and give u a reply

regards
