Re: how to recovery password




If you have access to the root account, you can reset the passwords on the switch to default. This
feature is available for all currently supported versions of the Fabric OS.
To reset any account password from the root account, follow these steps:
1. Open a CLI session (serial or telnet for an unsecured system and sectelnet for a secure system)
to the switch.
2. Log in as root.
3. At the prompt, enter the passwddefault command as shown below:
switch:root> passwddefault
4. Follow the prompts to reset the password for the selected account. For example:
switch:root> passwddefault
All account passwords have been successfully set to factory default.

How did you get that password recovery string: YjRYkJBD.eqoYX3XE9qwBA==   ?

Did you connect via serial and tried to recover it from there?
