I need to recovery the enable password on a couple of PIX firewalls running HSRP. Can anybody advise me if I need to adapt the standard recovery procedure? What I was considering was shutting both firwalls down, bring the primary one up, recovering the password, set a new on and then bring up the second firewall. Will the second PIX the sync with the primary to get the new password or do I need to both separately?
Incidentally, nobody knows of any problems with HSRP and setting passwords. I basically changed the Telnet password but not the Enable one. However when I came to access the firewalls the next day I found that the Telnet password had been correctly changed but I could no longer enter enable mode.
3. Once this is complete, power down the stand-by PIX and bring the primary back on-line. Make sure that the primary PIX (the one with the recovered password) becomes active and starts passing traffic.
4. Re-connect the failover cable and power on the stand-by PIX. During the bootup, the stand-by PIX should sync with the primary and get the new confic changes.
As for known issues, not that I am aware of. Would probably need to see exactly what you changed. Make sure you are always making the changes on the active PIX.
