How do I reset the Privilege password on a 2600? The former IT Manager left without telling us what it is, and now we're screwed.
you need a reboot and a serial console I'm afraid. Lots of places on Cisco that detail the password recovery process, it's quite complex so I'm not going to go into detail, but you need to be physically in the same room connected with a serial console cable (9600 baud) for it to work. Basically, use break to interrupt the startup, change the config register to ignore startup config, reboot , go to enable mode, copy run start, enter config mode and reset the password.
