  • 1.  V2 (V2H124-24) password recovery

    Posted 04-06-2017 09:22
    I lost the admin passwords of two matrix V2 (V2H124-24).

    the MACs are: 00-01-F4-45-1A-C0 and 00-01-F4-44-FE-60

    How can I do password recovery?

    I believe GTAC had to generate a backdoor password for it but the switch is no longer supported.

    was this the BIOS password? We have some VHs in storage we need to wipe before sending to surplus
    .

    Do you know how to enter a BIOS or boot ROM or similar on the V2 switches?

    Hi,

    there is a GTAC Knowledge article describing the procedure mentioned by Curtis: Password Recovery for the Matrix V2. But as I understand it, GTAC no longer provides the backdoor password, see How to recover password on a Matrix V2. :-(

    Is it possible to access the boot ROM, and boot to factory defaults from there?

    How about Extreme publishes how to compute the backdoor password for these old, out-of-service switches, to enable the owners to help themselves? The GTAC Knowledge site would be a good place for this.

    Edit: Sadly, the Matrix V2 switches we once had have been thrown away, so I cannot try anything out.

    Thanks,
    Erik

    Hi,

    we don ́t know how we can access to the Boot-ROM.

    login with admin/password does ́nt work - but we can login with guest/guest - but if we will "configure" the switch ask for password.

    any ideas for password recovery / backdoor password?
