Assuming you are referring to a procurve switch:
From the HP forum; "If you lose the passwords, you can clear them by pressing the Clear button on the front of the switch. This action deletes all password and user name protection from all of the switches interfaces." Actually I believe you have to hold it for a few seconds.

According to this there isn't a default passwrod.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software/2500-MgmtConfig-Oct2005-59692354.pdf

From Page 7-5

To Delete Password Protection (Including Recovery from a Lost Password): This procedure deletes both passwords (Manager and Operator).
If you have physical access to the switch, press and hold the Clear button (on the front of the switch) for a minimum of one second to clear all password protection, then enter new passwords as described earlier in this chapter.


Cheers,

Gary

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

Might have a password, but all articles and manuals, and old switch I had, say no default.
Then again, I have been wrong many times before. <G>

Set a Password     no passwords set      page 7-5    page 7-7   page 7-8
Set User Names    no user names set       —             —           page 7-8
Delete Password           n/a                   page 7-6    page 7-7   page 7-8

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
