Forgot password!

Hi,

can you gurus help me recover an enable password for a CISCO Catalyst 5000 switch.I have access to it and i can telnet. My console password is set to null. When I telnet to it and enter null password for CONSOLE> it leaves me in USGS prompt. I dont remember my enable password.

How can I proceed from this point?

Thanks,

Vensub

Re: Forgot password!

If I remember correctly, if you bounce the cat5000 and press Enter while its booting up, it will drop you at the console with no password and no config (hence no enable password). You can then enable and change your password.
