I've just got a bunch of 1700MXP back from a customer and they have put a menu password on all of the systems and haven't documented what the password is. Now I need to access the settings in the systems to be able to reconfigure them. Is there any way of doing a factory reset or reseting the system when you don't have the password?
The systems are set to static ip-adresses as well so I can't access them through my network since it's the wrong ip-range.
If you can connect to the system and issue the command that Jens write about, then you can just erase the MENU PASSWORD, no need to reset the system to factory defaults.
From telnet, ssh or serial console, type:
menupassword set ""
No more menu passwords.
Can you not connect using telnet or ssh, then you probably need to reset the IP PASSWORD
Using a serial console, type:
From the built-in help of a 1700:
