Re: Reset admin password on Compaq SW5450 switch

I just purchased one of these switches and I can't get into the admin account either. What is the reset procedure for this unit? I have a tech background, but very little networking background (only SOHO stuff), FYI.

I can get into the user account, but from what the manual says, that won't let me do much. I'd like to wipe it and start from scratch.
