Catalyst ws-c2926 password recovery problem

Hi,
I have troubles recovering the password on a cisco catalyst WS-C2926. I am following the Cisco procedure step by step and still can not make it. After loading the image (just before pressing "Enter" ) it asks me for a username and trying to connect to a TACACS server. Then I can get to the console but it is asking me for the privilige mode pass. Please Help!!!


P.S. I managed to recover the password using the same procedure on a Cisco Catalyst WS-C2900

    So you've done the above mentioned step, set the config register back to normal, rebooted... then it still wants an enable secret? It would be whatever you set it to when you booted without the config. (as the password recovery procedure goes)

    If it is not getting to fresh config then it means only 1 thing - you are not properly applying the following command: "rename flash:config.text flash:config.old" to rename the configuration file.

Do I need to buy a software license for WS-C2960S-48FPS-L?


No. WS C2960S 48FPS uses the Universal image, but no license is required. The feature is bound to the hardware model type and cannot be changed. For convenience, a single software image is used for all Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series Switches, regardless of whether they are a LAN Base or LAN Lite model.

Hi, my cisco catalyst 2960 switch is not powering. what could be the problem?


Usually when cisco equipment behave like that, its a problem with the power module, and it's best to contact the supplier...If it's under warranty they should replace it. If it's not you may need to get a technician to open it upand check the power module
