CiscoWorks recovery pass


The version of my Ciscoworks is 3.2. I configured the login authentication in the CiscoWorks to Tacacs+, informed Tacacs+ server IP address and the remain of the configurations, after having confirmed the configurations I remembered that I did not change to the Cripto-key default that is different of my Tacacs+ key. Now I do not obtain login in the CiscoWorks application. As I can make to revert this situation?



Re: CiscoWorks recovery pass

CiscoWorks should have asked you to set up an "admin" password during the install. Try username "admin" to log in with that password.

This action don't have another idea?


Re: CiscoWorks recovery pass

You may want to try resetting the admin password first:

If the above doesn't work for you, the following is gleaned from somewhere else on this forum. Proceed with caution at your own risk. Your Mileage May Vary:


Question: the login module isn't working. I have configured tacacs and I can't see anything in the ACS server log. So I understand the login module is corrupted? Also, each time I reboot the server (Solaris) I cannot access the application and I have to do a password recovery (resetpasswd) for the admin user.

Answer: You will get this problem when there is an issue with the TACACS server. In this case

you can disable the TACACS and use the local database.

Just in case you need to disable TACACS+ login module here are the steps:

1. stop the CW2000 daemon manager

win2k: net stop crmdmgtd

solaris: /etc/ini.t/dmgtd stop

2. go to NMSROOT/CSCOpx/www/classpath/com/cisco/nm/cmf/security/jaas

3. delete the file, JaasConfigModule

4. restart daemons manager

win2k: net start crmdmgtd

solaris: /etc/ini.t/dmgtd start

This will bring back the default login module which is "local".
