Recently purchased these 2 switches from a Datacenter pull.
Both are locked down tighter than a nuns &%*@.
I tried everything I could think off to crack these puppies open including the default passwords ( User / Admin / Factory )
I was able to connect to the serial console via the C7000's OA and was able to recover and reset the boot password.
Boot PROM Version: 4.6.6

They are not currently in production so even a factory reset would work as i can see the configuration is "locked" in and would have to clear it anyway.
Thank you for your time...

I tried but still no joy...
Im no pro when it comes to Brocade switches, but is there a way to "force" an update from the boot console ?
As mentioned earlier, these switches are NOT in production so we can get as messy as we want with them.
What other options do I have ??
