Hi Lerner,

The default administrative username and password are admin and admin, respectively.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Lerner,

Just wondering why you ask for the default username and password. Usually before the WLC can be functional, you configure it through the console and you get prompted for information through the startup script. In the startup script you would assign a username and password.

Hi ,

I doubt default  password is  admin for the image AIR-CT5500-K9-7-0-230-0.aes , the IOS  shoud have combination of three character   including special character  however I will check password : admin .

I dont have physical access to this device. interface and default gate way ,we have asked to configured through third part vendor , however we missed to provide the password .

There is no 'default' username/password for the WLC.  As Scott mentioned, when you go through the setup script you define a username and password

HTH,

Hello,

This is correct, there is no default username/password.

You have to set this username and password on the WLC initial configuration wizard.

If you have lost the access to the unit and right now is locked up, you can open a TAC Service Request and we can help you to recover the device.

Note: You will need to have console access to the WLC.

Lerner,

Just wondering if the 3rd party vendor gave you any documentation. I would assume that they would at least have that information if you asked for it. If not, then might as well make sure they configured it correctly after you reset the password.

Scott/Carlos,

  I think Najaf is right. We can configure a 5508 WLC either by GUI or by CLI. When configuring through GUI. It asks for username and password for service port. The default credentials are admin/admin. Once you login, we can change the password for it.

Password Recovery in WLC versions 5.1 and later

If you forget your password in WLC version 5.1 and later, you can use the CLI from the serial console of the controller in order to configure a new user name and password.

After the controller boots up, enter the Restore-Password command at the user prompt. This command is only accepted for the initial user login and becomes disabled after a user logs in. You are prompted to enter a new username/password, which can then be used to log into the controller and modify settings.
