Cisco IOS Enforces One-Time Use of Default Credentials

To address CSCsm25466, Cisco IOS images included with recent shipments of Cisco 800, Cisco 1800, Cisco 2800, Cisco 2900, Cisco 3800, and Cisco 3900 routers, enforce the one-time use of the default user name and password provided in the Cisco Configuration Professional configuration file. If you bypass Cisco Configuration Professional or Cisco Configuration Professional Express and use a console or Telnet connection to log in to the router, the login and exec banners warn you that you must change the username 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 in to 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 in to the router using a Telnet or a console connection but do not complete the steps in this procedure, be aware of the following:


 

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 in to the router in the future, use the username and password that you created in Step 6.

 


 

The Cisco Configuration Professional 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 Configuration Professional 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 Configuration Professional Config Editor, use the Cisco IOS CLI instead. Cisco Configuration Professional Security Dashboard may display threats unrelated to your Cisco IOS IPS installation

Some (or all) of the top threats you obtain using the Cisco Configuration Professional 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 Configuration Professional Security Dashboard, the dashboard may still display some (or all) top threats with a red icon because applicable signatures are not 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 Configuration Professional May Lose Connection to Network Access Device

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

If the PC used to invoke Cisco Configuration Professional 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 Configuration Professional 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 Configuration Professional 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 Configuration Professional 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 Configuration Professional to create a NAC exception list entry with the IP address or MAC address of the PC you use to invoke Cisco Configuration Professional. 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 Configuration Professional NAC online help pages.

Pop-up Blockers Disable Cisco Configuration Professional Online Help

If you have enabled popup blockers in the browser you use to run Cisco Configuration Professional, 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 Configuration Professional. 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 Configuration Professional Features

Instead of online help, screencasts have been provided for the Cisco Configuration Professional 2.8 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 Configuration Professional 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 Configuration Professional.

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 Configuration Professional.
