"5. Send the character string to your switch support provider to obtain a Boot PROM recovery password." - Who should I send a character string?

Re: After upgrade firmware, I cannot login on the switch!

sheff,

you must procede whit FOS Password Recovery, and not whit Boot PROM.

the character string consist only to obbait a new Password when BootProm Password was lost, this are TWO different things.

Re: After upgrade firmware, I cannot login on the switch!

Ok! It works!

I did -

1. Connect the serial console to the SAN switch (or  director). (Default serial console settings: Baud rate€“ 9600, Data  bits 8, Parity€“ none, Stop bits -1, Flow control none).

2. Reboot the switch

3. Press ESC at the message “Hit ESC to stop autoboot:€œ, the Boot PROM menu displays with the following options:

1) Start system.

2) Recover password.

3) Enter command shell.

Option?

4. Type "3€" to Enter Command shell.

1) Start system.

2) Recover password.

3) Enter command shell.

Option? 3

Boot PROM password has not been set.

=>

5. Run the "printenv"€ command to check the environment variables (This step is optional).

=> printenv

AutoLoad=yes
ENET_MAC=00051E907F99
InitTest=MEM()
LoadIdentifiers=Fabric Operating System;Fabric Operating System
OSLoadOptions=quiet;quiet
OSLoader=ATA()0x9dfc7;ATA()0x1a24e8
OSRootPartition=hda1;hda2
SkipWatchdog=yes
gatewayip=192.168.36.4
ipaddr=192.168.36.61
submask=255.255.255.0

6. Set the environment variable "€œOSLoadOptions" to single

=> setenv OSLoadOptions=single

7. Run the command œauto

=> auto

8. After the switch boot in single user mode, remount the / partition as read/write:

sh-2.04# mount -o remount,rw,noatime /

9.  Mount the second partition to /mnt (this will get from the value of "€œOSRootPartition"€ variable in "€œprintenv" output€“ usually it  will be "€œhda2", that is, /dev/hda2)

sh-2.04# mount /dev/hda2 /mnt

10. Verify the mounted file systems by running the "€œmount"€ command:

sh-2.04# mount

/dev/root on / type unknown (rw,noatime)

none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=620)
none on /tmp type ramfs (rw)

/dev/hda2 on /mnt type ext3 (rw)

11. Run the "œpasswddefault"€ command as follows:

sh-2.04# /sbin/passwddefault

12. Reboot the switch.

sh-2.04# reboot

After this steps, I can logged in to switch via root/fibranne

Thanks!

Hi I've had the same problem. Does this procedure delete the switch config?

Hi Hiten,

 

That procedure only set the passwords back to default, it does not modify the switch config.
