configured local login on the console, but forgot to create a user...

I saved the config, restarted and now I can't log in.  Is there any way to undo this change?   Should I just follow the normal password reset procedure (press the mode button, backup config, etc) and then create a login this way?

I assume so, but I'm 50/50 on if I should just clear the whole thing out and start over since I'm not THAT far in.

Thanks!

Hi,

First check out that you are able access the router via telnet or console,I mean if your are getting the username prompt.If you are getting the username prompt then try the local username which you have configured.If that isn't working then try for password recovery to make this router as if like new one.

Check out the belowlinks on password recovery for different routers series
