Have tired this several times without success. I get to the portion where I need to enter terminal configuration mode and every time I get "authentication failed" Seems like I'm stuck because I need this password to be reset to bring the switch back to factory defaults.
I figured out what I was doing wrong. I'm just now getting into cisco switches, so I'm sure it was a noob mistake. In the password recovery procedure they have you rename the config file, then rename it back. Well, for some reason if I tried entering conf t mode after renaming the config file back, I got "auth failed."
So I learned that if you just rename the config file, then wr mem, it works fine.
