I was going through customer radios the other day and ran into one that the password wasn't working on. The password was supposed to something like z0mb13sD0ntL1k3^s and it wasn't working. The password was exactly like the password on another device that I access frequently (e.g. I type that password in a lot) except the other password had a 1 at the end of it. So I think " I bet I set that with a 1 on the end out of habit " and try the password again but with the 1 on the end of it this time and it works.
So the first thing I do once I'm in the radio is go to remove that 1 from the end of the admin password (all other accounts on the radio are disabled). I go to where the admin password is and I backspace the last dot , hit save, reboot and pretty much instantly think "Hmmm... that isn't going to work, the dots in that field don't work that way.. I bet I just screwed up".
Well I did, I can't log in at all now.. so if you log into an ePMP radio, go to the password field under admin, backspace one dot and save it.. what is your password now ?
I tried the password that was working. I tried it without the 1 on the end, and I tried it with no password. I'm out of ideas and trying to avoid a truck roll to default the radio so I can access / reconfigure it.
