username and password don't work after w.15.08.0012 update

So I upgraded my first 2910al to the 15.08.0012 build.  The upgrade was done with PCM+ and it appeared to be successful.  PCM reported it successful and the switch came up after being rebooted and I could ping the other side.  I then did a second switch and again it appeared successful.  Then I tried to log into the CLI.

 

My manager username "root" and pw did not work.  I logged into the operator mode with no username or password.  I could not get to enable mode because it said the username and password were incorrect.  A "sh vlan" or "sh ip" still displayed the proper vlans and ip addresses.  I am stuck at this point.  Has anyone ever run into this? 

 

Also, I did notice that the date is set back to the year 1990.

Ok.  Just figured this out.  As of v15, my "root" username was changed to "manager".  It still kept my old password.  I should have read the release notes more closely.

Hi Chris,

I haven't yet come across a ProCurve switch with a non-volatile clock, so it's normal for it to show as 1990 after boot.

Seems kind of strange that it would change your administrator user name. I can't say i've seen that before.
Regards,
Paul
