Password Recovery in Cisco 4507 catalyst

Hi All, I want to recover the password of catalyst 4507 switch which is connected to a 6509 catalyst and AAA server is active. I tried to change the config register to 0x2141 but again on resetting, it is asking the username for authentication instead of Switch>. Please help me.

Hello Anil,

the system is presenting a username/pwd login like it has loaded the configuration.

I see you have two supervisors installed

I would repeat the procedure with only one supervisor inserted

Hope to help

Giuseppe
