ASA 5505 password reset in rommon

Hello Everyone. What would be the proper steps of resetting and ASA 5505’s forgotten password?
Thank you.

Hello Asen

You can follow the password recovery procedure found at this Cisco Community post. This procedure assumes that password recovery has not been disabled. If it has, then it is not possible to recover the password. In this case, a new image and backup configuration must be loaded if available. Otherwise, a fresh install must be made.

I hope this has been helpful!


Thank you Laz,
I will test it next week on the equipment, and I will try “no service password-recovery” for disabling the recovery either.
