Introduction

This document describes the administration password recovery procedure for the Cisco Cache Engine 500.

Note: Your configuration is lost after performing this password recovery. It is not possible to keep your configuration when recovering a lost administrative password.

Before You Begin

Conventions

For more information on document conventions, see the Cisco Technical Tips Conventions.

Prerequisites

There are no specific prerequisites for this document.

Step-by-Step Procedure

Perform the steps below to recover your password.

  1. Establish a console connection to the Cache Engine. Reload the device, or type reload or reboot at the command line. While the Cache Engine is rebooting, press any key to interrupt the low level configuration countdown.

  2. At the prompt, type p to display the configuration menu.

  3. At the prompt, type c to enter the configuration mode. Use the keys below to perform additional actions:

    • a period (.) to clear a field

    • a dash (-) to go to the previous field

    • the Enter key to go to the next field

    • ^D to quit

  4. Press Enter nine times until the field flags are displayed.

  5. Enter the value 0x4000 at the prompt, and press Enter. This flag will allow the Cache Engine to bypass the Nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) configuration.

  6. Type @ to reboot the Cache Engine. At this point, the Cache Engine is not password-protected.

  7. To configure a new password, type configure terminal to enter the configuration mode.

  8. Type user modify username admin password cisco to make "cisco" the new password.

  9. Type write or copy running startup to commit the changes.

  10. Reload the Cache Engine.

  11. To set the flags back to their original value of 0x0, repeat steps 3 and 4 and enter 0x0 in the field flags.
