Command line only logs in as operator - how to reset to factory defaults

How can I reset my switch such that it has the factory defaults (specifically, the manager password)?

I have physical access to the switch and have a serial line connected to the console, but I only seem to be able to get operator access.

    I'll answer my own question:
    Turns out that there is no magic "hold the reset button while powering on the switch" to get everything back to the factory defaults like there is on most other manufacturer's switches.

    But all is not lost - a call to A-T's tech support ((800) 428-4835) with the MAC address of the switch will enable them to look up a "backdoor admin password". I was able to use this backdoor password to reset the real manager password.

    Um, maybe I should be one fo the experts here? ;-)

I need a password containing 6 to 12 characters and containing a number


1-With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back of the unit labeled Reset.
2-Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.
3-The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.
Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults

DES-3226L A1


Log in to the switch as an administrative user (using the login command).

You can type the following command:

reset {config|system}

If you type "reset config" all of the factory default settings are restored on the switch except for the IP address, user
accounts, and the switch history log.

If you type "reset system" all of the factory default settings are restored on the switch.

If you just type "reset" by itself, the switch’s current IP address, user accounts, and switch history log are retained. All other
parameters are restored to their factory default settings.

How to reset the cisco switch to factory default?


When you say you were able to connect to the switch through hyperterm, were you able to login with the enable password? If not, you cannot reset the factory defaults without the enable password. If you do not have this then search on Cisco's site for password recovery for your model switch. If you did login with the enable password, the command to run for CATos is "clear config all". For Cisco IOS, you have the right command with "write erase". When you issue that command, do you get a "Erase of nvram: complete " or an error? Are you issuing the "reload" command after a successful erase? Be sure you answer No when it asks "System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]:" as sometimes this seems misleading and some people think they mean to save the reloaded default. They are really warning you that you are about to loose the old configuration and attempting to prevent you from accidently erasing it. So answer "no". After a successful reload of the IOS you should also clear any VLAN information. To do this, issue "delete flash:vlan.dat" and then do another "reload".

Volition 4000 Switch


Here is the user guide for this product: http://www.3m.com/CA/english/market/volition/pdf/VOL4000UserGuide.pdf Unfortunately, it says the only way to reset the factory default is to log in via the serial console, login, and change it from the menu. Default username and password for this device is listed as volition/volition or volition and no password. I'm afraid you may have to contact their support team to get this answer. http://www.3m.com/intl/ca/english/market/volition/technicalsupport.jhtml "For Technical Support, please contact: Adrian Cretu 1-800-265-1840 ext. 6267 "
