Need to reset password on Fibre channel switch - does maint mode disrupt service on the switch?
Posted on 2010-01-08
We have a VMware environment with a SAN and redundant FC switches. They are HP 8/20Q FC switches. The password for these switches has been lost and I am ready the documentation that says we can flip the switch in maintenance mode, log in with the maintenance account, and then reset the logons to default without affecting other configuration.
my only question is there any disruption to the network service on this switch when it is flipped in to maintenance mode? The documentation does not indicate one way or the other.
