I've inherited these Cisco Catalyst 2900 series XL switches from a previous Network Admin and is password protected. My question is, Is there a way to reset the password on these switches? or is there a backdoor password that I can use for this kind of situation? The former Network Admin do not know the password either as he also inherited those from a previous Admin.
