Hi!

This varies depending on what FOS you are running.

What about the factory/admin accounts? Do you know the passwords for them?

I would suggesting contacting HP Support for this reset.
Found some internal advisories for this and there's a massive amounts of steps that needs to be done.

You probably have to connect to it via serial port.

I can connect to it via serial cable no problem but when i get to the login i do not know the password. I do not know the password to the root account or admin/factory or user account. Is there a procedure that you can send to me to reset it?

Hi,


This is also known as the Brocade Silkworm 3200. Search the web or this forum for Brocade password recovery. It specifically depends upon the F/OS version the switch is running. See some examples here:

You may have to contact HP or Brocade if all four passwords have been reset and forgotten.

Re: Compaq StorageWorks San Switch 2/8-EL

when teh root login was not changed, log as:
username = root
password = fibranne
if the login is succesfully try the command "passwddefault"

if no, you need a special password recovery string from brocade. th eproblem is here, this switch is EOL and End of Support....

Good luck.
