Core Issue

The password for the Communication Media Module (CMM) is unknown. Users are unable to access the CMM remotely.

Resolution

To perform the password recovery procedure, console into the CMM by performing these steps:

  1. Remove the CMM from the chassis. The console port is located on the motherboard.
  2. There are two RJ-45 ports on the motherboard. Use the second one (towards      the edge or end) and a straight through cable (instead of a regular rolled flat      one).
  3. Remove the module directly above the CMM to allow a space for the console cable to run from the CMM motherboard to outside of the chassis.
  4. Replace the CMM back into the chassis.

At this point, you can use the password recovery procedure detailed in Password Recovery Procedure for the Catalyst 6500/6000 Series Switches Running Cisco  IOS System Software.
