I think I may have fat fingered the username/password when setting up my Catalyst 3850. I found password recovery instructions. However when I type the command "SWITCH_DISABLE_PASSWORD_RECOVERY=0" I get an error saying that it's read only. Can someone assist in the password recovery, or even just factory reset?
edit: there is a little pinhole reset button on the back. Will that take it back to out of the box settings?
Hi, I think it's a new switch and you have saved the config, but using wr or copy running-config to startup-config
If the config file is saved the switch will never allow to you login until you entered the correct password, do the factory reset option, or SWITCH_DISABLE_PASSWORD_RECOVERY=1 try with this as well, and let me know the update
