StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/32 (Brocade 3900) 240603-B21 - Cannot Login

I have two (StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/32 (Brocade 3900)) but I am not able to login to either unit. The configured IP addresses are unknown, therefore my only other option is connecting through serial port, but I cannot establish a connect to the unit, via Hyper Terminal, (9600 | 8 | None | 1 | None). I have tried various Hyper Terminal Connection settings options with no success. I rebooted units with no effect. Any login help is very much appreciated!

Hi,

Brocade switches has Default IP address 10.77.77.77
Brocade Directors require more than one IP address on the same subnet, in this case Default IP addresses are
* 10.77.77.77(logical switch 0)
* 10.77.77.76(logical switch 1)
* 10.77.77.75(cp0)
* 10.77.77.74(cp1)
For your case You can try with IP 10.77.77.77
If login is success then issue these command(s)
- ifmodeshow eth0
- ifmodeset eth0 (read for instructions and decide the best)
- ipaddrset

To login the default username is admin and passoword is password

All the best!!

I was able to connect to units by using the serial/console interface. I found I was not able to connect initially because I was not using a Null Modem cable. I am moving forward with password recovery. I did try 10.77.77.77 with no success, as it appears the default IP address had also been changed.

Used Null Modem cable to connect to console/serial port. The above IP information appears to be correct as well.

Luis,

I have the same issue and noticed that you were able to gain access through the Null Modem cable. I have not been so lucky. Was there anything else that you did in order to gain access through the serial port? When I connect the cable (Null Modem) to the serial port, using hyperterminal and putty with correct settings, nothing comes up. I can't seem to figure out what I'm missing here. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

1) Double check the cable, make sure it is a null modem cable. I thought I was using the right cable for a long time, upon double/triple confirming the cable with was not the same as an authentic null modem cable.

2) Using Hyperterminal, you will have to play with the connection settings, if I recall correctly, what finally worked for me was (ANSI / ANSIW) combo, something like that.

If the problem remains, let me know and I will try to recall more stuff.

Thanks for the reply Luis. I'll double check the cable and settings. I do recall having to change those ANSI settings. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again.
