1242AG accidentally deleted all usernames

Hi,

I'm in need of some help...

Whilst working on a 1242AG access point I accidentally deleted the username. The default username had already been deleted when it was first installed.

The config was then saved as the startup config.

Normally I would reset the unit holding the mode button whilst powering up etc and start again. However, this AP is up in the roof of a bus depot and I will need to get access equipment in order to reach it.

It is still on the network for web access but now won't accept any usernames or passwords.

Is there any way round this without having to get physical access to the unit.....?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave

I request you to brief me out more on what is the username?? i mean... Username which we enter while login to the device?? Do we have the access to the device??

Re: 1242AG accidentally deleted all usernames

Hi Surendra,

When the AP was first installed, the default Cisco username and Cisco password was removed.

A new username and password was assigned with full access levels.

Accidentally whilst in console mode, a 'no username xxxx' command was entered and saved. Therefore the AP now has totally no usernames in it.

We can connect to it on the network but cannot log in.

I was wondering whether even after the default username and all others have been deleted if there is still some kind of 'last resort' login that can be used?

Thanks,

Dave

oops.... Sorry, there is no other way to access other than consoling into it now... what happens if we try accessing the GUI?? if we provide the right password?

There may be hope yet.  You can remotely re-configure using SNMP.  There are alot of applications (including CiscoWorks) and another is Solarwinds' Engineer Toolset.

Nice one thanks. That could definitely be worth a try.
