For you to reset the password from STORAGE P2000 G3. Access the STORAGE whit USB cable using an emulator (putty).

User: restoredefaults
pass: MACADDRESS      ==> first check the MACADDRESS of the controller.

Just wait 3 minutes, then you can access again whit,

user: manage
pass: !manage

This operation reset only the password or the storage resets all settings to the factory settings?
the storage restarts full or controller only?
