    I have been given the task of fixing some problems with remote switches, Cisco Catalyst 2900 series.

    I have the login/password to MOST of these, but some are unknown (they have been in use for a long time, and anyone who would have the documentation/known the password is long gone) but I DO know the SNMP community strings (RO and RW)

    We currently do some port management with an internal appliation (up and donw ports) using SNMP. I am trying to update the IOS on these, and redo the configs to secure them a bit better (passing telnet/snmp strings in plaintext, no Access lists to restrict these).

    I have tried to use the following string: snmpset -c XXXXXP -v 1 XXX.XXX.145.30 . d config.text

    and I get the following error:
    . Bad value notation (config.text)

    any ideas on how I can push a new config up to these? Hoping to avoid a trip to the remote datacenters.
