Johannes -

The answer is on page 4-11 of the manual (http://tinyurl.com/phw8z). See the section "If you lose a password".

Holding the clear button for a few seconds will do the trick.

Hi Johanness,

An easy way of resetting the ypur password is to press the clear button then voila, your password is gone.

no, not when using Local Passwords. When using TACACS or RADIUS you can of course by changing it in the TACACS or RADIUS Server.

Hi,

If you have disabled password clearing and factory reset on your device, you
must contact HP support to recover from a lost password. The steps for this
operation are:


1. The administrator contacts HP support and provides the switchâ s MAC
address and a random offset generated by the switch. The offset value for the
password recovery feature is obtained by entering pwrecover at the password
prompt.

2. HP support issues a â one-time useâ password that enables access to the
switch.

3. When this password is used, the switch generates a new random offset that is
used to authenticate the new password.
Customers can disable this password-recovery scheme with the no frontpanelsecurity
password-recovery command.

if you didn't disabled, use Clear alone for at least one second to clear local passwords.
