PASSWORD RECOVERY IS DISABLED

PASSWORD RECOVERY IS DISABLED

Got this message on 3630.

Tried to use Cntl-Break.

It help me get to the question:

Do you want to reset the router to factory default

configuration and proceed [y/n] ?

Then I enter "y" and got next message:

Reset router configuration to factory default.

But is did not help.

How can I clear config and configuration register?

Thanks in advance.

The break sequence will depend on your terminal emulation . I still have not been able to figure out NT and hyper term. There is a listing of break sequences on CCO

Thank you.

But it is not 101 issue. I am aware about this one.

Re: PASSWORD RECOVERY IS DISABLED

Did you by any chance disable password-recovery procedure ?? Try using

"service password-recovery" in global config mode.

It is the point....

I can not get to the bootrom and interrupt boot process....

I believe that "service password-recovery" command was used.

And also configuration register....

So If you read my first posting than I was able get this message that should do reset to fabric configuration...

But it is not work.....

Anain : I KNOW all tricks with password recovery...And I also READ all information about password recovery on cisco.com

So If somebody really know what is going on - let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Solved.

Put 11.2 as software(on other flash). Then it works.

I think that IOS 12 with "service password-recovery" and some combination of register close box and standard password recovery.

Man...

Of course I read it.... This is the only close match in google....

But as I told.... I have it solver by booting from old OS version that do not know a bit about that command - " "service password-recovery"

That is it.

As an aside, you can probably agree that having a flash chip or flash PCMCIA card around with an old version of IOS can get you out of a lot of trouble. I have had to do this a few times. Thanks for the good posts.

It depends....

I did not try but if it will load software from the flash and you have no access to config then how you can make router boot from flash card?
