HP / Brocade 4GB c-Class SAN Switch - SilkWorm 4024

    Recently purchased these 2 switches from a Datacenter pull.

    Both are locked down tighter than a nuns &%*@.

     

    I tried everything I could think off to crack these puppies open including the default passwords ( User / Admin / Factory )

     

    I was able to connect to the serial console via the C7000's OA and was able to recover and reset the boot password.

     

    Boot PROM Version: 4.6.6

    They are not currently in production so even a factory reset would work as i can see the configuration is "locked" in and would have to clear it anyway.

    Thank you for your time...

    try with

     

    username = USERID

    password = PASSW0RD

     

    where the characters 0 in password is ZERO

    Thanks Antonio,

     

    I tried but still no joy...

    Im no pro when it comes to Brocade switches, but is there a way to "force" an update from the boot console ?

     As mentioned earlier, these switches are NOT in production so we can get as messy as we want with them.

     

    What other options do I have ??
