Setting BayStack switches to factory default

Hopefully someone can help me with this.

I got myself a couple of Bay Networks BayStack 250T-HD switches from ebay. I know how old they are but for what I had intended there really wasn't need for more.
However. I did not get the password with it and most of the ports are stuck in 10base instead og 100base. I have tried looking on the Nortel website for factory default flushing procedures but they seem to just want the switches to do it themselves. But I kind of prefer not to send the switches between countries for a little thing like that.

Does anyone have a procedure for a factory reset??

I have several old 350s and the factory reset is in the console menu.  Which you get to either by telnet or the com port.

As I said in the message then I don't have the password. That was the big problem.
Sorry about the no password bit.

Connect with a cable, reboot the router, then try the password: NetICs

This worked on the 350's.

Thank you. The NetICs worked on one of them. The one that has Software Revision: SW:V2.0.2.1

The other one has SW:V3.0.1 and will not recognize "NetICs". They obviously changed it.

Well.. We are at least 50% done. If anyone has the newer password it would be great. If nobody knows it then mabey someone here wants to buy a cheap baystack. ;)
