    Unplug the power cord from the switch.

    Reconnect the power cable to the switch while holding down the Mode button.

    Release the Mode button when the LED above Port1x goes out.

    This should get you a "switch:" prompt.

    When you get the "switch:" prompt, enter "flash_init", then "load_helper", then "dir flash:" and post the output of "dir flash:" for us to see what you have on your flash memory, ok?

    Hi jvax,

    I am an expert now for pulling the cable off and run commands. Good practice...

    Look what I have at the end ... I don't know what to enter. Tried everything...
    Waiting for your answer...
    Thanks.

    Don't type the 2 commands above that I highlighted in red. keep your config as "config.old".

    Instead, type "conf t", do some configurations like "hostname MySwitch", type "exit" then type "copy running-config startup-config" to save your configuration into a new config file.

    So, by typing the command that I highlighted "copy flash:config.text system:running-config", you were reloading the same config that contains passwords and user restrictions into memory, which is why you get locked out again!!.

    Let me know how it goes ok?

    !!! :) works fine ....
    Some entry and saving of change was required. Correct?

    1. I am scratching my head why Cisco instructions don't reflect this moment. Or it's something unusual with this switch? With first switch it was simple.

    2. Also when I typed some commands I got:

    Switch(config)#clock ?
    summer-time Configure summer (daylight savings) time
    timezone Configure time zone

    Switch(config)#clock sumer-time
    ^
    % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

    Switch(config)#host ?
    WORD This system's network name

    Is is Terminal Configuration problem that it didn't accept some characters?

    T H A N K You. Definetly I learned something.

    Next I will play with commands. Need to read Manual and Commands guide.
    So before I will get my routers and Cisco Press I can play with switches.

    I am planning to buy 5120 and fully loaded 5101 and may be 5114 in addition to 2 2610.

    3. I wanted to ask would 5101 with tranceivers do the same job as 5114?
    Do I need frame relay practice (5120-your recomendation) for CCNA?

    The 2501 has 1 Ethernet interface with 1 AUI port, so it needs 1 tranciever.

    The 2514 has 2 Ethernet interfaces with 2 AUI ports, so it needs 2 trancievers.

    FR is one of the WAN technologies covered by CCNA, so although it's not absolutely required and subject to your budget, having a 2520 for FR practice can be a lot beneficial.

    How you can explain the issue with the switch access.

    I would like to know why it happened.
    On first switch I followed Cisco instructions and first run:
    Switch>en
    Switch#rename flash:config.old flash:config.text
    Destination filename [config.text]?
    Switch#copy flash:config.text system:running-config

    And with this one procedure was changed.

    It's fairly simple.

    "rename flash:config.old flash:config.text" renames back the config file to it's original name.
    "copy flash:config.text system:running-config" loads the config into running-config, which is
    the state on which the device runs.

    Now, when you did "rename flash:config.text flash:config.old" before booting IOS, you took
    config.text away from IOS so that it doesn't load it at startup, which allowed you to bypass all
    passwords and user restrictions configured into config.text.
    But, when you did "rename flash:config.old flash:config.text" + "copy flash:config.text
    system:running-config", you loaded the same password-including config that you have been
    trying to avoid since the beginning. That's why it locked you down complaining about user
    permissions etc...

    I hope this clears it up better.
