No service password-recovery question
Posted on 2011-03-16
I recently took over for another administrator who left the company,who setup the routers and switches to erase their startup config if password recovery was invoked. As luck would have it, I had to reprogram a switch from scratch because the password was not available and I had to run a recovery. Anyway, my questions is if I remove the "no service password-recovery statement" from the rest of the routers, and replace it with service password-recovery, will that take out the function that erases the startup config when a password recovery is invoked? After I am done with this, I think I'm going to install AAA authentication to have all of the passwords in one place.Thanks in advance.
