Disabling Password Recovery For The Router

Sometimes you may come across a situation where you want to disable password recovery feature on Router to protect it against the Physical Security Violations. In such situation one should prefer to disable password recovery on router. Following in the hidden command to disable password recovery feature on router, I am saying this a hidden command because if you use IOS help to find this command than you won't find any keyword or other help.

R1(config)#no service password-recovery
Password recovery disable mode is not supported by the
current ROMMON.Please upgrade the ROMMON if you want to use this feature.

As you can see the alert message generated after running this command, you may need to upgrade ROMMON codes of your router to facilitate it with this awesome feature.

Best Regards,
Deepak Arora
