Hi community,

What EXOS version is your switch running? This might be an option: https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?n=000008964

This topic was posted in the EXOS forum. The C-series doesn't run EXOS, so I'll move it to the EOS group.
Take a look at this post here on the community: https://community.extremenetworks.com/faqs-90303/password-recovery-for-the-securestack-series-5613281

Note that if RADIUS has been configured to regulate management access (5677), the associated passwords on the RADIUS server will override the local passwords. To drop back to local passwords, use the following procedure while there is no connection to the RADIUS server, then log in and disable RADIUS, then continue with whatever recovery is necessary.

Maybe this will help!
Thank you for your Help,

I don't have the RW account and I can't access to the admin one.
I tried the reset boutton but it's not change my password to the default one.
So I don't find any solution without losing my configuration .

The problem that I don't have a saved configuration of this Switch.
