    Hey Everyone,

     

    I dont remember root password and factory password or these passwords were changed earlier.

     

    Is there a way to reset them without reboot or disrupt the switch.

     

    I have already tried the default passwords and they are not working now

     

    pls help to reset those default account passwords

    Password recovery, is the most common discussed question.

     

    Please use the search option here in the community, and you find a lot of threads.

     

    However in few words, the answer is No.

     

    If you have forgot admin and/or root password, or both, you must reset the password with password recovery procedure, and the switch must  be rebooted.

     

    if you have no access to the procedure, must open a call with Brocade or OEM Supplier, Support and maintenance contract is required.

    Hello,

     

    i don't think so ...you have to folllow password recovery procedure.

     

    Do you tried known root passwords from Brocade or OEM? Or was the root password changed to something else ?
