Real Challenge

I have an old Catalyst 2820 with an unknown console password and the Mode button on the front. The normal password recovery procedure for 2820 (as described on this site) does not work.

Any idea ?

Thanks

Re: Real Challenge

Hi,

If you are referring to the following link as not working:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/28201900/1928v8x/28icg8x/28ictrbl.htm#xtocid63758

then your switch was built before 6/97. The only way to recover it is to open a TAC case, and provide the serial number or MAC address, and they can provide you with the default password for the switch.

Or you may email me offline with that info, and I'll be glad to help you-- bobby@cisco.com

HTH,

Bobby
