Step-by-Step Procedure

Note: You will lose your configuration after you perform this password recovery. You cannot keep your configuration when you recover a lost administrative password.

  1. Console to the SCA device.

  2. Type the word FailSafe when you see a password prompt (regardless of whether at the initial login or after the enable command). This password is case-sensitive.

  3. Type yes when you see the message, "Do you wish to Erase the startup-configuration of this device and reboot?"

  4. Press ENTER.

The Cisco CSS 11000 SCA reboots (reload) with factory default settings.

Example of a Password Recovery Procedure

This is an example where you need to reset the enable password.
