Reset password on a Cisco 3500 XL Catalyst switch
Posted on 2004-04-22
I have inherited a network in new employment containing two Cisco 3500 XL Catalyst switches, connected to each other between buildings with two core fibre.
I want to access the web based configurator of these devices, but do not know the username of password. I gather the Cisco default for these particular switches is 'cisco' and 'cisco' - but this doesn't work.
Can I reset the password? Would this need a complete factory reset?
Would there be any existing configuration on the switches to enable the fibre links to work, would this get trashed on a factory reset?
Any information much appreciated.
