But your answer also implies a new question: How is the "priv" password if cookie is not set to all zeros?
In other words: The password must be stored in the cookie somehow. If I enter new cookie values and later find out that they are not correct/working/whatever, I'll have to go back to "priv" rommon mode. Thus I have to know how the "priv" password is calculated from the cookie value.
I know how to calculate the priv password, but I can not share that information for obvious reasons. The priv password for all zeros will be "0000". If you have issues after that, post the new cookie and I will try to help you out with the new password.
Thanks for your offer to help. I have already found out how to derive the password from the current cookie. Since this seems to be some sort of cisco secret, i won't post it here. Anyone who really wants to know it will find it out themselves.
Most of my other questions are also answered, e.g. how the processor board id is encoded in the cookie (not that hard;-)
Some other points are still open, but I have seen that some values may be guessed, or at least can be copied from other routers.
I have been able to fix the router, it is up and running again.
Thank you anyway, your help was very valuable for me.
