How to Password Reset on Nexus 5K

Here i will show how to step by step recover a password on N 5k (ex. N5548).

1. Do a hard reboot by unplugging the power cable.
2. Careful watch the switch boot up and when it gets to “Loading system software” (see below) and send break command “Ctrl + ]”.

3. Once you successfully send a break command ( Ctrl + ] ) it will take you to the below screen.

4. Now enter the following commands:

switch(boot)# conf t
switch(boot)(config)# admin-password NewPassword
switch(boot)(config)# exit
switch(boot)# load bootflash: <system_image_file.bin>

This is how it should look (see below). You will use System image not Kick Start image here.

5. Once the switch loads, please login and enter the following commands to assing the new password and save.

switch# conf t
switch(config)# username admin password 0 New_PASSWORD
switch(config)# copy running-config startup-config


If recovery fails. Go back to boot mode (Follow step 1-3) do write erase to kill your startup-config and repeat the rest of the process (Make sure you have backup of the original config by renaming the config file. Move is used to rename a file.)

I hope this helps!

    My dream was of a brown horse with black accents (main, feet, nose, Tail, etc.) It was going to be put down (not by me) because it had a broken lower leg. The horse began talking to me telepathically begin me to make them stop and not kill it. He was telling me he was going to be ok and would heal just fine. I was able to convince the rancher to NOT down the horse and the horse swung his head knocking me to the ground then laid down next to me and rubbed his head and face all over me thanking me for saving him. It was awesome.

    What’s next? That X-men have Filipino origins? Or Wonderwoman and Darna are cousins? Or perhaps Harry Potter was raised by a Filipino mangkukulam at some point.

    I made these last night and it was a disaster so I’m hoping you might be able to help me figure out where I went wrong. The recipe didn’t state what temp to bake at so I just did it at 350 degrees.

    ID!OT FANS OF DINGDONG & MARIAN ARE BEHIND METAL BARRICADES?……”Fans and spectators behind metal barricades cheered and waved frantically when celebrities stepped out of luxury vehicles”. Idiot fans must learn to embrace the reality and move on. Don’t allow yourselves to be fooled by actors and celebrities anymore. Fans love their idols so much but look what your idols have done to you? All of you are not invited. Hangang metal barricades lang kayo. Gets nyo?
