If you bypass Cisco CP or Cisco CP Express and use a console or Telnet connection to log into the router, the login and exec banners warn you that you must change the user name to "cisco" and the password to "cisco" before you log off the router. If you do not change the credentials as directed, you will not be able to log into the router the next time that you attempt to do so.

The following Cisco IOS releases enforce the one-time use of the default credentials:

12.4(11)T or later

12.4(11)SW, 12.4(11)SW1, 12.4(11)XV, 12.4(11)XJ

12.4(9)T5, 12.4(9)T6

15.0(1)M or later

Follow the procedure in this section to secure the router by creating a new username and password, to remove the login banner and exec banner warnings, and to save the configuration changes to the router startup configuration.


Note If you log into the router using a Telnet or a console connection but do not complete the steps in this procedure, be aware of the following:

If you do not change the default username and password, and then log off the router, you will not be able to log into the router again without entering the reload command. No additional warning is given before you log off.

If you do not change the default username and password, but do enter the write memory command before ending the session, future logins will be disabled. In this case, you will need to follow the password recovery procedure at the following link:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1831/products_tech_note09186a00801746e6. shtml


To secure the router, remove the banner warnings and save the changes to the router startup config, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Connect the blue console port on your router to a serial port on your PC using the light blue console cable, included with your router. Refer to your router's hardware installation guide for instructions.

Step 2 Connect the power supply to your router, plug the power supply into a power outlet, and turn on your router. Refer to your router's quick start guide for instructions.

Step 3 Use HyperTerminal or a similar terminal emulation program on your PC, with the terminal emulation settings of 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control, to connect to your router.

Step 4 When prompted, enter the username cisco, and password cisco.

Step 5 Enter configuration mode by entering the following command:

yourname# configure terminal
Create a new username and password by entering the following command: 
yourname(config)# username username privilege 15 secret 0 password
 
   

Replace username and password with the username and password that you want to use.

Step 6 Remove the default username and password by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# no username cisco 
 
   

Step 7 To remove the login banner, enter the following command:

yourname(config)# no banner login
 
   

The login banner warning will no longer appear.

Step 8 To remove the exec banner, enter the following command:

yourname(config)# no banner exec
 
   

The exec banner warning will no longer appear.

Step 9 Leave configuration mode, by entering the following command:

yourname(config)# end 
 
   

Step 10 Copy the configuration changes to the startup configuration by entering the following command:

yourname# copy running-config startup-config 

When logging into the router in the future, use the username and password that you created in Step 6.

 
   

Cisco CP Merge and Replace Configuration Functions Fail Under Some Conditions

The problem described here is caveat CSCsj21989. If you attempt to merge configuration changes made using the Cisco CP Config Editor feature, or replace the running configuration with a configuration from the Config Editor, the router configuration will not be changed if there is a network device with a Network Address Translation (NAT) IP address, or a cache engine in the connection between the PC and the router. If you need to make changes to the router configuration that you would normally make using the Cisco CP Config Editor, use the Cisco IOS CLI instead.Cisco CP Security Dashboard May Display Threats Unrelated to Your Cisco IOS IPS Installation

Some (or all) of the top threats you obtain using the Cisco CP Security Dashboard may not pertain to your Cisco IOS IPS installation. After you deploy the signatures applicable to the top threats displayed by the Cisco CP Security Dashboard, the dashboard may still display some (or all) top threats with a red icon because applicable signatures could not be found. Those remaining top threats are unrelated to your Cisco IOS IPS installation and are not a danger to your router running Cisco IOS software.

Cisco CP May Lose Connection to Network Access Device

This note concerns the Network Admission Control (NAC) feature.

If the PC used to invoke Cisco CP returns a posture state (Healthy, Infected, Checkup, Quarantine, or Unknown) and if the group policy on the ACS server attached to the posture token assigned to the PC has a redirect URL configured, the connection between Cisco CP and the router acting as the Network Access Device (NAD) may be lost. The same problem can occur if an exception list entry attached to a policy with a redirect URL is configured with the IP address or MAC address of the PC.

If you try to reinvoke Cisco CP from this type of PC, you will not be able to do so because the browser will be redirected to the location specified in the redirect URL.

There are two workarounds for this problem:

Ensure that the PC that you use to invoke Cisco CP attains a posture token that has an associated group policy on the ACS server that is not configured with a redirect URL.

Alternatively, use Cisco CP to create a NAC exception list entry with the IP address or MAC address of the PC you use to invoke Cisco CP. Note that the exception list entry created for the PC should be associated to an exception policy that does not have a redirect URL configured in it.

For more information, see the links on the Cisco CP NAC online help pages.

Popup Blockers Disable Cisco CP Online Help

If you have enabled popup blockers in the browser you use to run Cisco CP, online help will not appear when you click the help button. To prevent this from happening, you must disable the popup blocker when you run Cisco CP. Popup blockers may be enabled in search engine toolbars, or may be standalone applications integrated with the web browser.

Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2 blocks popups by default. To turn off popup blocking in Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Pop-up Blocker > Turn Off Pop-up Blocker.

If you have not installed and enabled third-party pop up blockers, go to Tools > Internet Options > Privacy, and uncheck the Block popups checkbox.

Screencasts for Cisco CP Features

Instead of online help, screencasts have been provided for the following Cisco CP 2.6 features:

These screencasts are located at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/cisco_configuration_professional/scrcst/ccpsc.html

You must have Internet access to view the screencasts.

Temporary Internet Files—Impact on Launch

Because of Microsoft Windows Java caching issues, Cisco CP is sometimes unable to complete discovery of a device. To fix this issue, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Choose Application > Exit to shut down Cisco CP.

Step 2 Close all existing Internet Explorer windows.

Step 3 Go to Start > Control Panel > Java. The General tab is displayed.

Step 4 In the Temporary Internet Files box, click Delete Files.

Step 5 In the displayed dialog, leave all file types checked, and click OK.

Step 6 Click OK in the Java control panel to close it.

Step 7 Restart Cisco CP.

CSCto67064

Certain date formats not supported in EnergyWise scheduling.

Symptom    When you try to access the EnergyWise feature, the following error is displayed:

An internal error has occurred.

Conditions   This issue is seen when you have entered EnergyWise schedule in a format that is not supported by Cisco CP (involving commas). Cisco CP does not support manual configuration of schedules because these schedules can be read incorrectly or can cause existing schedules to be removed. Cisco CP compatible schedules contain a date format in the form of spaced numbers without the use of commas, for example energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 0. Wildcards (*) are allowed in addition to 0-9.

Workaround   If you have a schedule with an incompatible format, convert it into multiple schedules that are compatible with Cisco CP:

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 0,1,2,3,4,5,6

should be converted to:

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 0

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 1

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 2

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 3

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 4

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 5

energywise level 1 recurrence importance 1 at 0 1 * * 6

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCto96064

Rollback failing when imported phone is SIP.

Symptom    Cisco CP displays an error message that rollback has failed on Bulk Import and the application does not get updated. You can see bulk imported data under phones, users, and extensions.

Conditions   Rollback on Bulk Import with a SIP phone entry is failing as the commands no create profile and create profile issued during rollback fails. As a result, rollback is considered as failed although the configuration on the router created due to Bulk Import has reverted successfully.

Workaround   Manually issue the command no create profile followed by the command create profile under voice register global to update the files on the Flash. Rediscover the device.

CSCto83180

Multiple virtual machines (VMs) installed on SRE-V are not displayed.

Symptom   

Case 1—If you did not select a virtual machine in Configure > Interface Management > Module Configuration > SRE-V > Permissions > User/Group > Edit, Select is displayed.

Case 2—Adding one more virtual machine using Configure > Interface Management > Module Configuration > SRE-V > Permissions > User/Group > Edit removes the previously added virtual machine configuration.

Case 3—Multiple entries are shown in the SRE-V Permissions screen for each user/group.

Conditions   

Case 1—In Configure > Interface Management > Module Configuration > SRE-V > Permissions > User/Group > Edit, when you do not select a virtual machine from the drop-down menu, Select is displayed.

Case 2—When the user/group already has one virtual machine associated with it, adding one more virtual machine using Configure > Interface Management > Module Configuration > SRE-V > Permissions > User/Group > Edit can remove the previously added virtual machine configuration.

Case 3—When a virtual machine, for example VM1 is already added to the user/group, adding one more virtual machine may create multiple entries in the Permissions summary screen upon refreshing the page.

Workaround   

Case 1—There is no workaround. Assume that the default virtual machine Host is associated to the user/group when Select is displayed.

Case 2—To add multiple virtual machines to the user/group, use the CLI.

Case 3—Read each entry as corresponding to one instance of virtual machine associated with the user/group.

CSCth67558

Unable to discover switching module.

Symptom    Cisco CP fails to discover switching module and reports that the module is being reloaded in the discovery details.

Conditions   When the switching module is configured with login local or AAA new-model configuration or both, the module requires one more level of authentication along with the usual authentication. In this case, you need to provide the username and password twice to get into the module prompt.

Workaround   Remove the login local and AAA new-model configuration so that the extra level of authentication is not required.

CSCto98404

Number of Retries Remaining displays as NULL if wrong SIM PIN is entered.

Symptom    Cisco CP displays Numbers of Retries Remaining as NULL, instead of the correct value.

Conditions   This issue is seen when the router has IOS version 151-3.T1 or above and you enter the wrong SIM PIN to run any SIM operations on the HSPA modem.

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCth34158

Switching Modules folder is not listed in the left navigation pane.
