Password recovery, Command authorization failed.
Posted on 2004-08-19
I got a 2610 router and trying to do a password recovery. I recycle the router and do a CTRL-Break on it, then I do a confreg 0x2142
Next, I do ENABLE
Then, I do copy star run
From there, I'm at the Privleged Mode and should be able to do configure terminal, so I can clear out the enable password. This is what happens.
Command authorization failed.
Why is this? Is there anyway besides clearing out the startup config to recovery the password? I don't want to clear out my current config that's in there now.
