Cisco Application :: Password Recovery For ACE Service Module 6500
Dec 27, 2011
I have an ACE10-6500-K9 (Application Control Engine service module for Catalyst 6500) but I can't access it because I lost the admin password.I would like to know how to perform a Password Recovery Procedure on this device.Is it similar to the password recovery procedure on an ACE 4700 appliance?
I was just configured a 3800 router with this command. I cannot get to the ROMMON mode anymore. Cisco says you should press Break key within 5 seconds after the image decompresses during the boot. But mine is ignoring it and going to load running config directly.
I purchased a Cisco 851 router from ebay a few weeks ago that has the "no service password-recovery" option enabled. I've tried every "break" option i could find, and this thing does not seem to let me get in. I asked the seller for the password, and they refused (though i cant even get to a prompt to enter a password) or ROMMON. The unit comes up and reports its trying to connect to "Translating "stipp.srv.hcvlny.cv.net"...domain server" once it comes up, and thats it. [code]
We have a cisco 2801 router in class which has a disabled password recovery. We tried almost everything, we cannot get into ROMmon and the break sequence doesn't work in any program (hyper terminal, putty, teraterm pro).
Here is the log from hyperterminal:

we are planning to implement a VSS solution with a 6500 series switches with sup 2T. We also need to include an ASA service module on the design, however the budget is not enough to buy two asa service modules. So i want to know if is possible run a VSS cluster, whit only one ASA service Module. and also i would like know what happens if the single ASA service module fails? can the switch cluster continue operating just as if there is not a firewall installed?
Does ACE service module support SHA2(256) certificates? I see that private key generation defaults to SHA1 and does not provide any option, also the cipher suites in SSL parameters map do not show SHA2 options. Can it handle SHA2 in any software release? I am currently running A2(2.3) build 3.00
i have configure new ACE 30 module on top of 6500 core switch , the issues am facing whenver i want to access to https://ACE_IP and after i enter the user name and the password , it's forwared me to the follwoing page: is there anything should i configure to avoid this page ?
We have a situation where services are stopped on the real servers. The probes fail and we confirm the services are not running on the server. We cannot access the ports from the ACE directly. We can still however acces the VIP on the TCP port (L4 VIP class-map). So we can still telnet to the VIP on the port from thr Client side of the network.This is on ACE 20 Modules deployed in Routed mode. The version of software is A2(3.3).
Tried removing multi-match and loadbalance policies as well as class-map and re-applying then re-appyling the service policy to interface. Same behavior,This is a problem at another level as some services are being monitored by GSS via TCP keep-Alive and this obviuosly causes a problem as the service then never goes off-line.
I am having issues (nothing new there) I have a bad IOS on a switch module, and the config is set to boot to that IOS, and as such I get a nasty boot loop, I am trying to figure out how to get into rommon but all the documentation I can find for this just says go into rommon and never tells me how to get there on a switch module that thinks it has a good IOS. (The IOS is for our normal service module but this one is an odd-ball switch)
I have problem recovering my cisco 501 pix password. I followed instructions on this pageurl... but it seems its not working. I cant ping my TFTP Server on my pc. I tryed to disable firewall on my pc, i did a fresh install Windows but still i cant ping my TFTP Server on my PC.
I just bought one of these in and it was in production and I have no way of getting a hold of the login information. Is there a way to wipe these to factory defaults? I have been looking everywhere with no such luck.
I am a student pursuing a CCNA certification currently. I recently came across a lot of 3548 xl switches. They power up fine, post with out problem and load flash. The problem I am running into is that the console is password protected. I have found the password recovery procedure for this switch, but it requires the use of the mode button. I have tried this process several times and the flash file is loaded with the startup config file. How do I perform a password recovery on a switch with a broken mode button?
To configure my Cisco, I use the console cable but as I have no serial port on my PC, I use a USB to serial cable which I plug the console. I had lost this USB cable -> serial but I found another one. So I started to configure my Cisco by copying from an existing config. I found out that a prior the converter is defective and copy the wrong config.
I had copied the enable secret password and it badly copied! No luck, I made a copy run start. Therefore more accessible to Cisco! When I start the Cisco, I see what activated "the Mechanism password-recovery is enabled". so I followed the procedure Cisco
I go flash_init: OK but when I type "load_helper" Unknown command it say to me .... I'm stuck!
The model is my Cisco: Cisco WS-C2960G-24TS-S SW Version 12.2(55)SE3 Sw image C2960S-UNIVERSALK9-M
I have a couple of 877s which have "no service password recovery" set and something has happened to the flash or the IOS has been lost for one reason or another.
When trying to boot the routers, they all display similar to this, which then repeats:
Or words to the effect of there being no IOS at all, unable to boot, but the result is the same, it just loops and there's nothing I can do to break the sequence!
I've tried taking the flash from a working 877 and replacing the card but this doesn't work and unfortunately, putting the once working strataflash card back in the working 877, it gets the same problem!
I have a cisco 515e pix but where I bought it from did not get the machine back to default. I boot it up and get to the user prompt, type enable and it asks for a username and then a password. I am new to this and am have no problems with router and switch password recoverys but when I look at the cisco documentation it is a bit overwhelming and I am not quite sure what it is that they want me to do to fix this. I have downloaded all the password recovery software loads and have the one I need for 6.x which is what the box is running I am just not sure what it is that I need to do. Can I use that recovery software from directly from my pc using a tftp server?
I have some confusion about some hardware components. I watched the video datasheet of cisco routers and switches. In cisco 2901 and 2911 models of routers there is service module . What is meant by service module. what does it do ? If we buy a new 6500 switch, what are the components we get bydefault. Is there any special configuraton to be done for 6500 . like Sup engine config etc. What is the difference between ASIC and Sup engine ? In which slots, we need to insert Supervisor Engine ? does it vary with the model . (6503, 6505, 6509, 6513 etc).
I just got 2 Cat6504 Chassis and 2 ASASM pluged in them. show version from submodule ASA as follow:
SVC-APP-HW-3#show ver Cisco IOS Software, trifecta Software (trifecta-SP-M), Version 15.1(1)SY, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)
I want to upgrade new OS for ASA to 8.5 (asa851-smp-k8.bin) but after copy this soft to the module, I can not "write" command or when I reload this box, everything was no changed. SVC-APP-HW-3#write startup-config file open failed (No such device)
Using the new SUP-2T, need to clarify one query. If we are using the new SUP-2T in VSS mode, will the new ASA service module and NAM-3 are supported? From Cisco site, ASA module FAQ:
Q. Will the ASA Services Module support the Cisco Catalyst Virtual Switching System (VSS) at FCS?
A. Yes, depending on which supervisor you use. The ASA Services Module supports VSS either as a single firewall or as a failover pair of firewalls, when used with the Supervisor 720-10G (VS-S720-10G-3C and VS-S720-10G-3CXL). Transparent and multi- context modes also work with the VSS in this configuration. However, though the SUP 720-3B (WS-SUP720-3B and WS-SUP720-3BXL) is supported by the ASA Services Module, it is not capable of supporting the VSS. No reference to Supervisor-2T.
I need to recover switch enable password, i have already configured AAA also, when i am tryig to follow below proceedure finally saying Authorization failed. how can i recover enable password,If I try to recover password like this description says [URL]
Step 1 Connect a terminal or PC with terminal-emulation software to the switch console port.
Step 2 Set the line speed on the emulation software to 9600 baud.
Step 3 Power off the switch. Reconnect the power cord to the switch and, within 15 seconds, press the Mode button while the System LED is still flashing green.
Base ethernet MAC Address: 00:0x:xx:xx:xx:xx Xmodem file system is available. The password-recovery mechanism is enabled.
The system has been interrupted prior to initializing the flash filesystem. The following commands will initialize the flash filesystem, and finish loading the operating system software:
I have a 4404 running firmware 7.0 and something happened (don't think it was a hack), but all of a sudden I can't login to the box via web or ssh or even telnet.
In trying the recovery procedure, I get a lot of messages scrolling through and cannot do the Restore-Password command on the CLI.
I'm attaching the whole capture, but here's a truncated capture from the procedure:
*fp_main_task: Nov 21 10:39:46.501: sshpmGetCID: comparing to row 0, CA cert >bsnOldDefaultCaCert< *fp_main_task: Nov 21 10:39:46.501: sshpmGetCID: comparing to row 1, CA cert >bsnDefaultRootCaCert<
So as you can see, my prompt to enter the command is taken up by this fp_main message and it uses up the first and only time I can enter this in. I'm trying everything I can to not have to go back to factory defaults.
How is-it possible to do a recovery password for sysadmin on ADE-OS ?We're using LMS 4.2.1 and my customer doesn't remember the username and password created during installation.We have the admin user for the https connection.
I have 3 x ASA 5510 & 2 x ASA 5520, that require resetting back to factory default, the customer has removed the External Flash Cards, and i've checked internally on each unit the Internal Flash car is still present, is it possible to run a password recovery then a factory reset? and how would i go about resetting each unit to the new configuration.
