Got any warranty / support left? Call HP.

 

Try the default passwords: fibranne.

 

Boot switch with serial cable connected and try to reset passwords through that.

i 've the same problem overhere,...password is lost and collegue is exit.

switch is production so reboot is very unwishfull.

serial console is connected,...but asking for username/password.

is there a way to recover a lost password without outage??

We recently had the same problem with Brocade Switch suplied by IBM.

It was done by IBM engineer , but it was on chargeable basis .

Reboot is must .
