Avocent DSR2161 IPKVM console password reset possible?
Posted on 2007-10-10
We recently inherited an Avocent DSR2161 IPKVM. We do not know the password for console access. We're also unable to get it on the network since we don't know what LAN subnet it was previously on, so the only access we have is through the serial console, but can't get into anything.
On the unit, there's no reset button of any kind, and opening the unit did reveal a few connectors, a few jumper posts, one with a jumper actually on it, and an open post next to it.
Does anyone know a way to reset the password on these? It's dead and useless without it.
