1) I have a Switch (Cisco Catalyst 2900 XL)
2) This Switch has got the configuration by Copying from the "latest configuration's file"
3) The hostname of the Switch is "SW2"
4) When the Switch is booting up, it appears like this:
- I type in "enable"
- But it asks the "password"
5) I remember that the "password" for the "secret" is password1
- When i type "password1", it does not pick it up

6) Now, i can not do anything with the Switch
7) My question: i) How to recover the password for "secret"?, ii) Is there any "default password" for the "secret"?, iii) What should i do now?
8) Thank you
