Unable to recover admin password on MDS9148

Hi,

I am new to MDS and i have encountered problem while recovering admin password on two MDS9148-16p-k9 switches.

Switches are configured with admin password which i don't have it with me, so i followed the cisco document to recover the password -

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/ps4159/ps4358/products_password_recovery09186a00801258c3.shtml

I am OK so far following the guide through Step 1 to 6, but in step 7 when i tried to load the san os image (mine is m9100-s3ek9-mz.5.0.1a.bin), it did uncompress and load the image and running all the way until the stage where prompting the password. (the password which i set during switch(boot-config)# mode was not reflected)

I also never had change to perform the Step 8 to save the configuration (switch#copy running-config startup-config) as well.

This issue happend on both MDS 9148 switches i have.

Please help!

Regards,

Kaung
