I am trying to figure out if the dhcp is disabled on my 515 but I dont know to much about unix or its commands to find out. I can log into it but I am stuck on where exactly to go? Could anyone please help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks Neal
im not a cisco pro or anything, but if i had a PIX, and i know Cisco stuff are VERY expensive, i would simply call Cisco tech support and get the quick answer from them. just a quick suggestion to get your answer quicker.
Thanks, It does show that it is enabled. I need to disable it but I think I am going to have an issue. The login i have has a security level of 2. I tried to change the clock and it wouldnt let me. What is the command to disable dhcp. Thanks Neal.
Usually if you use the negate commands "no" for of the commands that enable dhcp it usually disables it.
So "no dhcpd address 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.254 management" and so on for teh dhcp commands listed for the 515 and that show up in your config.
As for you username problem. You can access the enable mode correct? If so you can reset the admin password using "configure terminal" to access the global config mode and then "username admin password xxxxx."
If you can't access the terminal to configure it I think its possible to break into these in the same way as a router. I assume your using the console connection to connect to it. To do that you have to power down and power on the PIX and when its booting you'll see the "system bootstrap" info and at that point you press "ctrl + break" to get to rommon. I think this works, don't quote me on it even though I used quotes
Let me know how it goes. Try the username commands first.
I figured out the problem, I didnt type in the configure terminal command. So I was able to disable dhcp. I am trying to log into the pix via pix device manager. I updated the certificate but now it is giving me a host name mismatch? I have looked on the web but havent found anything but configuring a new pix. When I log into 192.168.XXX.X it tells me the certificate is ACVGATE@emailaddress.com so 192.168.XXX.X doesnt match the certificate. How do I change the pix to a host name of 192.168.XXX.X? Thanks for all the help. Neal
I am not the original installer. I was trying to log into the pix via pdm. When I first started looking through the pix yesterday I noticed the time and date was off by a couple years so I changed the time and renewed the certificate. When I log on to the pdm it asks me to accept the certificate which i do but it tells me of the host name mismatch. And doesnt let me log in. I looked over the web and found data on the pdm which is version 3.0, but in only explains a new install not configuring an existing install. It says to go into the config mode and enter setup but I dont want to loose any settings that are critical! It took me a day and half to get cisco to return my call. I dont know enough about the set up to know where to look! But it said in the setup there was a host name which i believe is the culprit. It also stated to allow inside traffic to the pdm by typing in http ip address subnet inside which I did and it told me my ip already exists. Its not a big issue now that i got the dhcp disabled I would just like the ease of looking at the pix via pdm instead of the command line. Thans Neal.
