    Extricom reset password

    Hi,

    Does anyone have any information on how to reset a lost password on an Extricom EXSW2400 switch? I know the IP address and can also connect via console but I can't seem to find any documentation on resetting the switch to its factory default. I know on HP switches you can generally connect a patch cable between ports 1 and 2 and reboot and this will reset but I cannot find any info on Extricom. I do have the Extricom WLAN System Users Guide but there is no mention of this. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Just had a word with one of our chaps at Extricom, try the below and this should sort it for you:

    To change the web admin password:

    - Log in to the switch via the console / serial port or via ssh (putty) to the ip address of the switch
    - Username = ‘root’
    - Password = ‘octopus’
    - At the command prompt type:
    o passwd admin [ all lower case ]
    - Enter a new password (‘Switch1’ is a good one) & repeat if asked
    - Type ‘exit’ on the command prompt to log out.
    - User should now be able to log in via the web with user name ‘admin’ and the password just set ‘Switch1’


    Hope that helps.

    Thanks,

    Mark
