Password Recovery - AAAA-3-INVSTATE: unknown AUTHOR/CMD

Hi,

I have bought a second hand Cisco 2620. I have managed to run through the password recovery procedure, however whenever I try anything the below happens:

tdi-adve-manche-s0002#sh run

Command authorization failed.

Router#

*Mar 1 00:25:26: %AAAA-3-INVSTATE: unknown AUTHOR/CMD: Internal state is invalid: astruct 0x81127D98 ustruct 0x0

-Traceback= 802ED784 802ED69C 803372D8 803384B4 803466D8 803C97BC

Router#

What can I do?

Hi,

Your start-up config may be intentionally corrupt. Try and see if another file exists in NVRAM .

See the following url :www.examnotes.net/archive31-2002-4-34215.html

Hope this helps

Re: Password Recovery - AAAA-3-INVSTATE: unknown AUTHOR/CMD

Hello Andy,

use the password recovery procedure again and remove all AAA commands it looks like it was configured for AAA to ask to a server if you have rights to execute a command or not.

do

no aaa new-model

and remove all commands that start with AAA or even better erase the config instead of importing it.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
