OSD password for 1x1x16 IP Console Switch

Hi

I've upgraded a 1x1x16 IP Console switch to the latest firmware, 3.0.1. Following the upgrade the OSD is asking for a password which I can't find anywhere? I can access the system through the LAN port and configure / use it with the HP IP Console Viewer but not locally.

Can anyone point me towards the default password or how to set one up?

thanks

tommy

The only way to get back the password for the OSD is by calling HP...the are the ones who can help you with that...

One more thing:

When one looses the password that was set for the serial port, this is considered an Out-of-Warrenty event. The warranty does not cover lost passwords to the console switch serial port. The switch must be returned AT CUSTOMER EXPENSE to HP for replacement...

But before doing that, call them to see if they can help you....

Thanks folks, that was what I figured.

What I don't understand is where the password came from. It's not a case of setting one and forgetting it. There was never one set for this unit, The password prompt just appeared after the firmware upgrade.

If one of my engineers was claiming this I'd be saying "of COURSE it just appeared itself" but I did this one myself.

Tommy, just for the sake of it, have you tried Username Admin and Password Blank, or both blank, or admin admin?

For me it was

uname: Admin (case sensative)
pword:
