ASA Password recovery


  • Reload ASA and during reloading push "Break" or "Esc" button when prompted to ROMMON




  • Change registry value like below - (Note current Registry value) - in that case 0x00000002


  •  reload ASA (rommon #x> boot ) - ASA will start with default settings instead of startup-config.
  • go to enable mode and copy startup-config to running-config



  •  set new password


  •  configure  old registry value


 INFO: My old value was 0x0...2 but I wanted now to set 0x0...1

  • save configuration and reload ASA
