When I did the initial setup, I missconfigured one of the APIC controllers (it supposed to be an active one on a x3 cluster) and put it as standby controller.
I tryed to log in on to the APIC witth no success. I also tryed a password reset procedure but It didn't work. Is there any way to reset the APIC controller to factory default in order to do the initial setup of the node again?
Hope anyone can help me.
If you are able to log into the apic, you can issue the following CMDs to re-initialize startup script values:
> acidiag touch setup
> acidiag reboot
Since it is a standby controller, can you try logging in as
password: "admin set password"
Hi Gabriel, thanks for you help
I tryed to log in with the rescue-user credentials you provieded without luck. In this case the standby APIC has never join and APIC cluster o fabric.
Here is an Screen shot when I tryed to log in via GUI on mgmt interface
Any other idea? Have a good one.
Apologies, I should have been more clear. Please try to login either via KVM Console or SSH with the following credentials:
password: *whatever password you set as the admin password in apic1*
GUI access is not allowed. Also, the above assumes that your startup parameters matched such that APIC1 can reach the standby apic (and subsequently sync the "admin" password to the "rescue-user" account).
For reference, I just tried this in my lab and was able to log in successfully.
Thanks for your reply. I tryed to log in using the password I typed on apic1 but it was impossible. So, I reinstalled the node by connecting via KVM Console. After 30 minutes I could finally recover the node.
