Resetting the config / password on a HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-Port FC Module

Hi there,

I got two HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-Port FC Modules which seam to have a config / password on them diffrent then the default settings printed on them. So I research how to reset them but it seams that you can only reset the Enet Modules since the SAN Modules are non-intelligent. But on the Virtual Connect Manager I can not do anything with the modules as you can see here: 
I tried to press the reset button on the modules for 10 seconds. Does not reset them. Also vcsu tells me it can not communicate with them: 
I also tried the brocade way to reset them. Serial connection thru SSH on the Onboard Administrator. It works. I can get into it. Can even run the /usr/bin/passwordsdefault but since it is VC i guess the VC layer is on top of the brocade stuff...

Any Ideas?

Thanks a lot guys,

Regards,
Yves

There is no login or configuration interface for VC FC modules, you need an ethernet VC module to configure them.

 

AFAIR the only way to use them "standalone" is to manage them with OneView.


Hope this helps!

Re: Resetting the config / password on a HP Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-Port FC Module

Hi Torsten,

Thanks for the quick feedback. Yeah, that's excatly what I learned browsen tons of forums and reading tons of articles... BUT my VC FC module has a static IP and a fixed name from the previous owner... So I guess they have a previous "config"... and also you can SSH into them... and you should be able to login with the Username / Password from the label on top of the modules... which I can't since those logins got alterd. Maybe thru OneView maybe not... I can't see a firmware I can't see them connecting or talking to my 10GB Flexconnect modules...

OneView... I can't get it just for resetting does modules? Right?

Thanks again for your help.

Regards,
Yves
