I would say you have hit a software bug looking at the output or else something's up with your dram  , you could break into in through rommon and upload a new image or send it back as you just got it

Components Used

The information in this document is based on this hardware version:

  • Cisco 1900 Series Integrated Services Router

The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.

Related Products

Refer to Password Recovery Procedures for information on how to recover passwords for related products.

Conventions

Refer to Cisco Technical Tips Conventions for information on document conventions.

Step-by-Step Procedure

Perform these steps in order to recover your password:

  1. Attach a terminal or PC with terminal emulation to the console port of the router. Use these terminal settings:

    • 9600 baud rate

    • No parity

    • 8 data bits

    • 1 stop bit

    • No flow control

    Refer to these documents for information on how to cable and connect a terminal to the console port or the AUX port:

  2. If you can access the router, type show version at the prompt, and record the configuration register setting. See Example of Password Recovery Procedure in order to view the output of a show version command.

    Note: The configuration register is typically set to 0x2102 or 0x102. If you can no longer access the router (because of a lost login or TACACS password), you can safely assume that your configuration register is set to 0x2102.

  3. Use the power switch in order to turn off the router, and then turn the router back on.

    Note: 

    • In order to simulate this step on a Cisco 6400, pull out and then plug in the Node Route Processor (NRP) or Node Switch Processor (NSP) card.

    • In order to simulate this step on a Cisco 6x00 with NI-2, pull out and then plug in the NI-2 card.

  4. Press Break on the terminal keyboard a couple of times after you see the message program load complete, entry point: 0x80008000, size: 0x6fdb4c in order to put the router into ROMMON.

    Note: The values of entry point and size are subjected to the routers.

    If the break sequence does not work, refer to Standard Break Key Sequence Combinations During Password Recovery for other key combinations.

    If unable to break into ROMMON mode, perform these steps:

    1. Remove flash.

    2. Reload the router. Router will end up in ROMMON mode.

    3. Insert flash.

    4. Perform standard procedure for password recovery.
