How to force the switch to factory default?
Posted on 2008-10-13
Since I am unable to make the necessary changes because of a misplaced Administrator password, is there a way that I may force the switch to its factory default configuration and then reconfigure it? The admin who was responsible of the switch did not provide us the password. I checked the manual and it mentioned the switch needs to be "Offline" before resetting to factory default. In order to put the switch to "Offline," I need to already be logged in as an Administrator. Is there another way to force the switch to its factory default without logging in as an Administrator?
