You will need to put it into recovery mode and hard reset it to factory defaults by the looks of it Support - Problem Solving - Command Line Interface Problems
You forget the password for the "admin" user account and can no longer perform important management operations.
Use the password recovery method outlined below to define a new password for the "admin" user account:
- Access the Command Line Interface through the console port and enter the user name "recover" and password "recover" to place the Switch in password recovery mode. The Switch remains in password recovery mode for a maximum of 30 seconds, before it returns to the CLI login prompt.
- Perform a hard reset on the Switch whilst it is in password recovery mode by switching it off, waiting a few seconds, and switching it on again.
You cannot use a soft reset operation to reset the password of the "admin" user account. This will end the password recovery procedure and return you to the CLI login prompt.
- When the Switch has rebooted following the hard reset enter a new password for the "admin" user account.
- You are now logged in as the default "admin" user.
