Re: password recovery

Hi Ali,

Can you please briefly explain what all steps you tried for password recovery on MSFC? I am asking this becase this will give me a picture what you did and where you missed if by any chance you missed some step we can find that out.

Re: password recovery

Hi Ali,

As you mentioned you have already done the password recovery of sup running catos now no need to reboot the whole box.

What you can do is have a console connection to the supervisor and then just reset MSFC with "reset ".

Wait for 5 seconds approx and immediately issue "switch console" command which will give you a console access of MSFC which is in rommon.

Once you get the access of rommon you can change the config reg value to "confreg 0x42"

After this just have a look at this link it will give you step by step instruction which I have mentioned and I am sure you will be good to go .

Re: password recovery

Hi Ali,

Once you are on "console>" prompt you are already in CATOS screen. You can type enable to go to the enable prompt and once you type enable and hit enter it will ask you password if you have set any enable password and incase you have forgot that then you may need to do password recovery for CATOS also.

Re: password recovery

Hi Ali,

Please clear me that when are you pressing ctrl + break? As I updated in my previous post if you have already done password recovery for your catos you just need to reset your msfc and then you need to hit a command "switch console" to go to the router rommom prompt and then immediately hit break sequence. REMEMBER if the break does not work there is a lin mentioned in STEP 5 for some break sequence key. Also make sure you hit it in right time or else router will boot normally.

Remember you have to start this once you have console connection to the console port on the sup and not with the telnet session.

If you just have a look at the link which I pasted above it will guide you with step by step procedure for password recovery of msfc.
