Easy PIX Jumper Question

This should be an easy one... Have a PIX 515 running 6.0, set up for AAA before the admin left (with the credentials) and now we are not able to get into the box. The generic password recovery process for the PIX does not work because it was authenticating to AAA, and the AAA servers are also gone. We have attacked that from multiple directions and we are ready to wipe it clean - it is being moved to a new project anyway. I understand that there is a jumper setting on the PIX itself that can be used to wipe the PIX clean, does anyone have this info on the jumpers? Thanks so much!

Re: Easy PIX Jumper Question

Actually pulling the jumper won't erase the flash.

you need certain software to do this which we do not distribute to the public.

You should be able to password recovery using np disk by tftp. I suggest to call TAC to get the file.
