N7K-SUP2 Password Recovery

Hello all,

I tried to do a password recovery on a n7k-sup2 and can't seem to login.  I issued a write erase in the switch(boot) mode and reloaded.  I'm lookinga at the cisco manuals online but can't seem to find anything on the default password.  All I can find is a reference to if a write erase is implemented then at startup you get this:

User Access Verifcation

login:admin

password: <password>

I tried every combination I could think of but can't seem to figure out the default password.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just to make sure the default user id is admin correct?

N7K-SUP2 Password Recovery

Hi,

Usually, if you are building the switch for the first time, there is no password.  So, at boot the the default username is admin and you have to create a password at that time.

did you tray

admin
