Question about Networking Hubs & Switches

1 Answer

Password Recovery I have Lucent Cajun P332MF switch SW ver 3.0 which I cannot reset the password on.  I can logon using the default root and ggdaseuaimhrke credentials but I can not use the set_defpass or the username commands.  There is no help command or menu command available.  After I logon the only response to any commands is "Command not found, try: help" but help doesn't work.  Hopefully someone here can help.

Re: Password Recovery

The login you are using should have placed you in super-user mode. Are you connected directly to the switch with a serial console cable?

I cannot connect using serial console port (no signal / data out of serial console port). I don't have IP address of the DS4100B. I don't have its password... How can I reset it to factory default?

I am assuming you will still need console connection to do a password recovery.. however, here is the link to one password recovery doc that may help.

I forgot ip address and password and want to factory reset

Connect the console cable, open a connection to the serial port via a utility such as PuTTY, and do the following:
1) Enter the user name "recover" and password "recover" to place your unit in password recovery mode. The unit will remain in password recovery mode for 30 seconds max.
2) Perform a hard reset by removing power, waiting 10 seconds, and then re-applying power.
3) Once the switch has rebooted, enter a new password for the "admin" user account.
4) Enter enable to leave password recovery enabled, or enter disable to turn it off. You are now logged in as the default "admin" user.
Note: If password recovery has been disabled, the only way to recover access is to return the switch to 3com.

How i can reset the password in a enterasys C3G124-48, if lose it

Before trying anything too drastic, I'd try using the username "admin" without the quotes and leaving the password blank. If that doesn't work, then you'll have to use the reset switch that's located on the back of the switch (number 1 in the pic below). nickmyers46.jpg

The following steps are taken from the manual for the switch.
1. Press-and-hold the reset switch while the switch device is operational. This change of the login password to the default password will be indicated through CLI only.
2. Logon the device management. You can now logon to the switch through the console port and assign a new password using the command line interface (CLI).

Lucent Cajun not talking to cisco catalyst

Not sure what Cat switches you have, but the cajun switch must use the same trunking encapsulation.  Older catalyst switches use ISL trunking which only work with Cisco switches.  Make the port between the lucent and cisco dot1q encapsulation on the cisco trunk port.  Also turn on debugging on the cisco and see what messages are generated.
