I guess there is no Default ip address of extreme.

To access with Web GUI mode.

Follow this steps.

  • configure vlan "Default" ipaddress 10.10.10.1/24
  • enable port 1
Connect your PC to port 1 and type 10.10.10.1 in your web browser.

Hope that it help.

how to set password?

Diff between user and admin?

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that and was wondering why I wasn't able to login with the encryption option set.

Diff between user and admin?

encrypted means you'll enter an already encrypted password. So your password is not "india" in your case. This is useful when someone else has to create accounts (NOC...) but shouldn't know them.

To have "india" as password, do the following:

# create account admin sumit
password:
confirm password:

or you can add the password in clear text in the CLI while creating the account.

Hi Alexandr,

it will not effect the rest of the configuration file of the switch except the admin account and password right?

Thanks!

Hi Sumit, read my answer below, you can create account with password.

when creating the account, the keyword "encrypted" means you will provide an already encrypted password. Without that keyword, you provide a clear-text password.

Either way, the passwords are stored encrypted in the config. So a "sh conf" will not reveal them.

Also - this do not change admin-admin account, it's only create new admin-test account.
You can login with admin-test and change password of admin-admin account.

Hi, Paul!

This script only create account, there no impact (effect) on other points of configuration.

Very important thing - DO NOT SAVE configuration after create script.

Thank you!
