HP ProCurve 2510G-24 asking for username

I set the management password using the menu option but did not see where it asked for a username.  Now when I go to login it is asking me for a username.  I have tried to leave it blank, tried Admin and Administrator and it is denying me access with my new password.

I believe it is because I do not have the username.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Have you tried pressing the Clear button on the front of the switch, next to the Reset button? This should clear any saved usernames and passwords.

Depending on the platform and OS version, there is a default username of "manager"
