Enable ssh2 or telnet on XOS without using the console port

    Hello, at all!
    I have made a mistake by disabling ssh2 and telnet on an X460G2 (fw 22.4.1.4). And now i can't manage the switch per remote. Is there a possibility by enabling ssh2 or telnet on this switch without driving to the system and using the console port?
    Thanks for your interesting!

    Hello Carsen,

    I apologize. I think your only option is to console in to make the configuration change.

    Is the web interface still working? You could try that.

    If you have a python environment on your server, you could try using the jsonrpc_client.py

    If snmp rw community is configured you may try to do reboot remotely - https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/How_To/Setting-the-Next-Reboot-time-via-SNMP-with...

    How about using the password recovery solution. .XSF file.

    Don't know if I am allowed to copy and paste it here , Im sure there will be a GTAC document , just replace create account admin test test with Enable Telnet.

    Basically autoexec.xsf should load before the configuration.

    Is it possible to just set ssh to enable via SNMP or is there no such MIB object ?
