I’ve picked up a couple second hand AP122s and I was able to reset/re-configure one of them with the serial connection and CLI. But it seems the previous owner of the second one didn’t do any kind of “factory reset” on it before disposal and I can’t seem to reset it. It just boots up and comes to a login prompt with what I assume is the hostname of the device. They must have disabled the reset button in the config because I’ve tried holding that button in for well over 5 seconds (up to 30) and it always just boots to this same prompt and no username/password combination will work.
I can; however, get into the bootloader so it seems I should be able to load a new image via TFTP (https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000056869) but I just need a firmware image. The current version on the AP I have been able to configure is HiveOS 7.0r4 build-145241. I’m not sure about this other one, nothing in the boot process seems to report the version number. It looks like 10.0r9b is the latest version for the AP122; can I go straight to that from 7.0r4 or will I need to go up incrementally? Is there a way to just copy the firmware image from the one working AP to the other one?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks Sam. Yeah, I’ve tried every username/password known to man, nothing works. I was able to load the new firmware, but stupid me, I assumed it would completely overwrite everything (including the current config). Turns out it didn’t so I still had the issue of not actually being able to log in and do anything on the AP.
Luckily, formatting the flash did wipe out the existing config so upon the next boot, everything was back at the out-of-the-box defaults. Now I’m in business.
