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

Is it possible to just set ssh to enable via SNMP or is there no such MIB object ?
The web interface isn't working either ..

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.
