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.
You can console in and reset the password.
Connect to console
Logon with username as password
Password is forgetme!
Then run the following
mgmt-user admin root
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.
Works like a charm, thanks!
