I've inherited some network gear.
Dumb question I fear - may I have some help with password recovery?
2x VDX6740s in VCS Logical Chassis running OS 6.0.2b
Root account is disabled and the admin password has been lost.
I've been reading some of the manuals and Googling around and it looks somewhat more involved than I was expecting.
Failing that, what are the steps to flattening the pair? (While keeping whatever license keys are on device)
I have an old backup of the config and I'm alright(ish) with the Brocade stuff so I could rebuild them.
I'm happy to do whichever is quickest and causes the least amount of sadness.
I really appreciate any help you can provide 🙂

I know this has been a while! Took a while to finally get the downtime I needed.
I now have management access and the config was retained.
Everything worked great except for Step 12.
"Enter cfgcleanup to default the configuration on bootup"
"cfgcleanup" did not work from the root.
Thankfully I had a colleague with me who's considerably better with Linux than me.
Thank you very much for your help. 🙂
