New Arubian -- How to reset 3600 controller?

I have just inherited a pair of 3600 controllers that were stashed in a closet.  No one has any idea what the login credentials are.  I've searched and found a CLI command (write erase all) to reset to defaults, but AFAIK, I have to get past the login prompt to run that.  At least one of them appears to have been configured at some point, as the serial console shows a hostname, so I'm guessing default credentials are a no-go.  Is there a bigger hammer?

 

Also, I don't know what licenses these may or may not have.  Pardon the cluelessness, but is there a retrieval mechanism by serial number, or are they gone for good?  Not a big deal, they may have only been demo units, or expired (if that's how it works), so I'm not expecting much.  Just hoping to have something to poke at while I wait for my schedled training day.

 

Thanks everyone.

You can console in and reset the password.

 

Connect to console

Logon with username as password

Password is forgetme!

 

Then run the following

Also, before running write erase all, get the licenses off (if there are any); or just run write erase (no all).

 

show license verbose

license export <name-of-file>

 

TFTP file off of controller.
