Re: Pass Word Recavry

Well, a couple of things to think of here.

You say you can't login, so that means you have to set a normal password via:

passwd "password" encrpyted or

password "password" encrypted

without the quotes.

This is the actual login password.

The enable password is for enable mode after you have logged in.

Cheers,

Steve

enable password blahblah

sets blahblah as your password

enable password blahblah encrypted

tells the pix that "blahblah" is the password in encrypted format. thus, the password is some string that after a hashing routing generates "blahblah"

Basically, you set the enable password to something you don't know, and thus will need to do the password recovery routine in the link above.
