We have  SAN HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 1000 (Part Number 201723-B22)

with two Modular smart array 1000 controlers (Part Number 218231-B22)

and two HP StorageWorks MSA SAN switch 2/8 (Part Number 288247-B21, Fabric OS v3.2.0) - We found information that it is brocade product.


Through one of switches it isn't possible to be connected to the server. The POST indication and messages received through serial cable of errors isn't present, and all tests are passed.


Logon to a switch is impossible as all passwords by default were changed (admin, root, factory, use/password, fibranne).


According to the instruction "BROCADE. Fabric OS. Password Recovery Notes" for reset of the password on switches with Fabric OS v3.x is used the Password Recovery firmware method. We made it, but it didn't work. The firmware booted, but passwords weren't reset.


Please, tell  how to reset the passwords or to receive firmware for recovery of passwords by default?
