Password Recovery for Catalyst 6500

Hi all,

According to this website:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_password_reco

very09186a00801349aa.shtml

Password will not be activated in the first 30 second, so when we want to do

the password recovery, we just press enter and quickly change the password.

I tried this in the Cat 6509 but found a different result. When I press

enter, it didn't go to console (prompt) instead, it keep asking me the

password.

Is there anything change in the password recovery for Cat 6500 (I've done it

before but when I try it again, it showed a different result). FYI, i use

this version of CatOS = cat6000-sup2k9.7-6-12.bin

Regards,

Affandi Indraji

Hi Friend,

There is no change in the password recovery procedure it is just that you might not be doing it fast enough in 30 seconds.

Just power off and power on the switch again and then immediately try hitting enter as soon as it prompts for the first password and then follow the same procedure what you used to do for other CATOS switches.

HTH, if yes please rate the post.
