Trying to get my pair of new demo 8000 units from brocade up and working with on IP for managment.
swd77 console login: admin
2010/05/24-17:12:01, , 17, FID 128, INFO, swd77, Security violation: Login failure attempt via SERIAL.
Tried all the usual:
Password: "password" "admin" "Passw0rd" "brocade" etc..... but no login.
I assume this means that these switches were once configured due to switch name "swd77"
I did some googling and found a few manuals on the 8000s but nothing about factory defaulting / resetting the factory password.
Any direction on for some RTFM to reset the switch back to default / or reset the password?

swd77 is the default chassis/ switch-name in all Brocade Switches.
try as root, pw= fibranne
if the root account was not changed and you have a succesfully login, try the command "passwddefault"
if no, ask brocade for password or you need to reset with the password recovery procedure.

You are correct.
I googled and saw that password with association to brocade factory default.... but did not try permutation of 'root' with password of 'fibranne"
Now all I have to do is figure out FCOE with IBM POWER

Here is a better answer for the HP version of the same switch 2408
