Admin access to controller broken by stupid mistake

Hi,

I did some test with controller 7210 and LDAP intergration for local account-provisioning user account, but by mistake I disabled local authentications so I not able to login to the Web GUI or SSH CLI as admin (see attatched screenshow from my spare 7210).

 

How to regain admin access to the controller? I'm able to connect with serial console and login with password/forgetme! but this access is very limited, so changes and even show running config is restricted.

HI,

 

After login using password and forgetme! credentials, you an change the admin password and privileges as shown here under.

 

user : password

Password : forgetme!

on Config terminal mode : (Master-3200) (config) #mgmt-user admin root
Password: (enter the new password for admin)

 

Hope you got your solution

 

Cheers,

Hi,

 

Resetting the admin password should reset all privileges. try and let us know. please feel free if the issues is not resolved.

Hi, simple reseting of the admin password didn't help, put following command solved my problem:

 

(aruba1) (config) #no mgmt-user localauth-disable

 

Thanks.

Re: Admin access to controller broken by stupid mistake

not sure if it was possible for you. but blocking access to the ldap (or other auth server) would probably also have been enough, then local access is allowed.
