How to know the lowest MAC address for STP Root Election

I'm getting ready to take the Cisco 3925E CCNP switch exam, and I have what may be an elementary question. In all the guides I've read, and lab manuals that I've used, anytime there are multiple switches that can be the possible root, the MAC address's are shown in a very simple format....such as aaaa:aaaa:aaaa or bbbb:bbbb:bbbb or some other such simple address thus making it obvious. How about in the real world, or on Cisco exams? Do you need to convert the entire address to be sure or just a portion?
MAC addresses are in hexadecimal format ranging from 0-9 and a-f. It's pretty much sequential from there.
A mac address of 0020.01cc.de23 is lower than 0021.01cc.de23. Another example would be 0000.c0a7.ffc2 is lower than 000.c0a7.ffc3 Cisco3925E

reset password Catalyst 4006 Ethernet Switch


Hi,

Depending on the Supervisor Module model, most likely it's a standard Cisco's "password recovery procedure":

Connect to the console
Reboot the switch (power cycle)
Start pressing Ctrl-C till you get to the BOOTROM
Change boot configuration register to 0x2142 (confreg 0x2142)
Boot the switch. It will ignore confuguration and boot "empty".
Go to "enable mode".
Copy startup configuration to running configuration ("copy start run")
Change boot register back to 0x2102 (conf t -> conf 0x2102)
Write config (write mem)
Reboot

Good luck,

Problem with cisco 2513 routers


Check what version of software do you have. Do "dir" command and look at the file name. If it contains "K9" in the name, then it has "crypto" functionality, if it doesn't, then you need to find it (however it will be quite a challenge, as these routers are end-of-life for a decade...)

Good luck,
