Re: PIX 515 password recovery error

Looks like you have AAA Authentication commands in your configuration. Remove them and you will be able to login without username and password.

Performing Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting of Users Through PIX Versions 5.2 and Later:

example how AAA config could looks like, remove them:

aaa-server AuthInbound protocol tacacs+

aaa-server AuthInbound (inside) host 172.18.124.111 cisco timeout 5

aaa-server AuthOutbound protocol radius

aaa-server AuthOutbound (inside) host 172.18.124.111 cisco timeout 5
