When we had our switch setup, they left with default passwords on it.

How do I change the password so it is no longer default, and to what ID's must I change the password so we dont leave a security hole.

Login as 'root' to the switch and use the 'passwd <username>' command, like this:

sw0:root> passwd admin
Changing password for admin
Enter new password:
Re-type new password:
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully
Saving password to stable storage.
Password saved to stable storage successfully.

Open in new window


The default users are: user, admin, factory, root.
