I work in a lab environment where equipment is shared around between different departments. I have received this switch, and nobody can remember the password they set on it. I have the ability to console into the pre-boot environment but not log into the switch to manage the fabric and the ports.
What is the method for reseting the admin password, or clearing the config and maintaining the licenses from the console pre-boot environment?
Thanks for your help in advance.
