Re: Catalyst 3512-XL boot

Hi Friend,

You know what is going on, someone has set the login password on the console login that's why its asking for a password. Do u know the password ??

If not you have to do a password recovery procedure on the switch and take out all the password related settings.

Please see the link below:

Please revert in case of any clarifications.

HTH, Please rate if it does.

Re: Catalyst 3512-XL boot

Thanks for the reply.

Well, I know the console login password and I know the startup-configuration of the switch.

What is worrying me is the output of the boot sequence. I see "MAINTENANCE INTERIM SOFTWARE" and particularly "FreeBSD 4.10 (STABLE) - Kernel 2.6.27 on an i686".

It doesn't look to be a "standard" boot sequence...

What do you think?

Thanks
