i am trying to reset password for the Cisco Nexus 7010 chasis need ur help
i tried these commands and it didn't work
Step 1 Establish a terminal session on the console port of the active supervisor module.
Note If you are using a non-U.S. keymap, the key sequence that you need to press to generate the break sequence may not work. In this case, we recommend that you set your terminal to a U.S. keymap. You can enter Ctrl-C instead of Ctrl-] (right square bracket) due to keyboard mapping.
Step 2 If you use SSH or a terminal emulator to access the console port or you are recovering the password on a Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switch running Cisco NX-OS Release 4.0(0)N1(2a) or earlier releases, go to Step 6.
Step 3 If you use Telnet to access the console port, press Ctrl-] (right square bracket) to verify that it does not conflict with the Telnet escape sequence.
switch login: Ctrl-]
If the Cisco NX-OS login prompt remains and the Telnet prompt does not appear, go to Step 6.
Step 4 If the Telnet prompt appears, change the Telnet escape sequence to a character sequence other than Ctrl-] (right square bracket). The following example shows how to set the Ctrl-\ as the escape key sequence in Microsoft Telnet:
telnet> set escape ^\
Escape Character is 'CTRL+\'
Step 5 Press Enter one or more times to return to the Cisco NX-OS login prompt.
Step 6 Power cycle the device.
Step 7 Press Ctrl-] (right square bracket) from the console port session when the device begins the Cisco NX-OS software boot sequence to enter the switch(boot)# prompt mode. You need to press Ctrl-] (right square bracket) when you see that the system image is getting loaded.
Note For Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switches that run Cisco NX-OS 4.0(0)N1(2a) or earlier releases, use Ctrl-B (Ctrl+Shift+B) instead of the Ctrl-] (right square bracket).
