Changing runlevel

Hi,

I have a Brocade 5100.  I am able to get into command shell.

I need to change runlevel to 1 in order to change user password to default

How do you edit  /etc/inittab  ?

Re: Changing runlevel

Josef,

a password recovery procedure is available in order to reset password to factory default.

have a look here in the community, and you find diverse threads.

BTW.

first, from email you send me yesterday, the email-address is invalid.

second, generally I don't answer email with free email address ( like gmail, yahoo, hotmail,  etc. )

Re: Changing runlevel

Hi, Try below procedure.

connect the seial cable to switch

Reset the switch and while booting press ESC key

Select 3 i.e enter command shell (default password is "password")

when cmd shell appears enter "printenv"

Note down the OSLoader variable first part and enter

$boot

Once OS is loaded run below cmd

$ mount -o remount,rw,notime /

$mount /dev/hba2/mnt

Run below command to reset all passwords

$/sbin/passwddfault

All passwords will be reset to default

Then type reboot -f
