Upgraded from non-FIPS to FIPS - Locked out
09-21-2012 01:05 PM
I upgraded a 3200 controller from 22.214.171.124 non-FIPS to 126.96.36.199 FIPS
Following the reboot, the switch is no longer on the network, I have console access to the switch, but needed to "forget" the password in order to login. I'm unable to change the password using the "mgmt-user admin root" command as it tells me I'm not compliant with the password policy. I also cant issue any show commands:
It appears the device has been reset to factory. How can I recover?
(Aruba3200-US) (config) #mgmt-user admin root
Error : Non-Compliant to Mgmt Password Policy
Internal error occurred, Password validation failed
(Aruba3200-US) (config) #show version
You do not have permission to execute this show command show version
