Brocade 4/24 Password reset

I use "Brocade 4/24 SAN Switch Power Pack for HP c-Class BladeSystem"
Serial Number: CN8642801W
Spare Part Number:411122-001
Part Number:AE371A
I forgot password.
Now I can not make any changes to the configuration.


I fulfilled with my HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator in ssh:

1. connect interconnect 4
2. reset switch and pressed esc
3. I select "2)recover password"
I try to restore the password and receive the message:

Send the following string to Customer Support for password recovery:


4. I select  3)enter command shell

As a result, I get a password request that is not known to me.


Does anyone else know a way to reset the password?
Where to apply for password recovery?

Re: Brocade 4/24 Password reset



the password recovery string, is a Boot Password recovery and not the FOS password recovery.


if the switch is under maintenance, then open a TAC with HP in order to get instructions how to recovery pwd
