I have goten some old express 10/100 switches from my IT department, and I want to reset the user and passwords that are on these. not eaven thay do now the admin user name and password that in on them.

I whant to beable to change settings in them, as it is now I cant do any thing, and I dont now the settings that are on the ports.
What I do now is that I have colitions when I try to use one computer on the switch, whit speeds of 3-600Kb/s.
I have tryed eavry settings on the computer in hpe to find a match for the settings on the switch, whit out luck (no the cmoputer is fine).

So I wonder if there is a whay to reset the users and passwords that are on the switch?
I realy want to get in and see what settings are set, and change them to more my liking.

***Keep in mind though that it will erase your entire configuration, not just the password.***

It seams to bee one other version of the switch, because I cant find any reset button in the front or any where.
The switch was  purchased in mid 98, so its pretty old. it have 8 ports and 2-4 optional fiber ports.
It seams that the only option shuld be a jumper some where. I cant find any mentioning about reseting to factory def in the manual or any where, its just like u cant reset them. Or not any whay that one shuld now of.

What model of intel switch do you have?  Is it one of the switch's listed in this article?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

no, to new.  =/

Product code is ES101TXW (the W is on the switch but its not on any page that I have found at least), there is 8 ports whit additinal 2 or 4 fiber modules (optional). Its old, pretty old the full name of the switch is as I put it in the header,  intel express 10/100 fast ethernet switch.

I have goten the tip to use user and password as debug, and that do get me in, but I cant reset the password and user to default any way.
Whit the second reset or the switch is turnd off, then the old user and pasword is active again.

Are you able to plug into the console port and using hyperterminal, interrupt the boot up process?  Or is it running SNMP do you know?  Perhaps you could change the config using SNMP write commands...

No I cant break the boot up, and I dont now how either. I have it on a workbench at the moment, so I use console. Im not to sure if it hase SNMP installd or not. As far as I now, the IT department have allways used console to change settings.

When I use debug as user and password I can get in and write comands. Every thing that I change stays, except I cant erase user and passwords.

The comand for default settings is init-nvram and then cold-reset, now I can log in whit default settings. But do I a new reset or switch the power of, then user and paswords are back in effect, and its only user and passwords that will revert back. Any thing else is as I did set them to.
