Cisco 878 "priv" command password recovery in Rommon mode

Hi,

There was " Cookie information corrupt" error on cisco 878 and I enter cookie information with cookie command. The priv command password is "0000" when all cookies zero, but I inserted wrong cookies . I want to edit cookie information. The priv command password changed and I can't edit cookie informations.

How can I recovery priv command password in rommon ?

Thanks for help,

Re: Cisco 878 "priv" command password recovery in Rommon mode

Hi friends,

I solved problem.   You must add the first five numbers in 16-bit hex in cookies :

Sample :

0001
+0030
+85d7
+e060
+0aff

————————-
=        17167

The password is only four characters, so remove the most significant bit  and the password is 7167.
