Hi,

is it possible to enter on router AR19-10 trough console port without password and read current configuration?

I've lost password and i need to upgrade my configuration.

Why there are no manuals available?


Best regards

Hi,


With most Huawei devices, you can break into the device startup using the CTRL-B combination whilst the device is starting up. Note you can only do this from the console and yu should see the prompt "Press Ctrl+B to enter extended boot menu..."


You should then be prompted to input the "Bootware password".


I have just tried this on an AR19 that I have and the password seems to be unset by default so just press enter and you should get a menu.


One of the options on the menu is "Skip current system system configuration". This should boot you up ignoring your configuration. If you do this you should be able to get onto the console of the device, as the config file is in text format you should be able to retrieve all the information from this file.


I haven't been able to find any documentation on the Bootware menu system, however you should be able to find documentation for the ARx9xx series routers on the Huawei support web site. These are in PDF format and there are configuration guides as well as command references available. You will need to create an account on the Huawei web site but I think you should then be able to download the manuals.


Hope this helps.


Regards Nigel
