Password Recover procedure

I forgot all the passwords for switches and routers. Is there any way to login for switch / routers ?? Is there any software available ?

Using communitiy string is it possible to login to switch / router ?

Important : All the switches / routers are in production network. It is difficult to switch off .

Re: Password Recover procedure

Resetting a lost password varies from device to device. The only thing really consistent is that you need to have physical access to the device. Cisco has very clear instructins on-line for their hardware. Search the site for password recovery procedures, or hardware maintenance.

Re: Password Recover procedure

I don't think you have a choice but to reset at least once.

Here's the link:

Goodluck!
