Hi All,

I have a customer and he 3 Extreme Switches. He don't know the Username and password for his switches because the one who configured the switches is not here now. I want to reset the Username and Password via console cable. I found some blogs here in community but i am afraid from configuration reset, I want to know the method mentioned here will effect my current configuration or not.

if your colleague was not "educated" then most probably you will have user account with default password. it is worth to try instead of "admin" use "user".

Hello, Waseem Ulah!

You can access to switch with default account from BootRom:
BootRom > config none 
BootRom > boot

After that you can access to switch with login "admin", password - none.
Then you can download configuration file, add lines with new account and upload to switch.

Thank you!
