We have purchased new DCX X6 in our environment but are struggling to get the default Root / Factory passwords
Can any one share the default ones for X6 ??
Appreciate your quick response in this regard.

-> DCX or X6 ????
in X6 root account is disable by defalut on switches that have FOS 8.0.x
you need to login trough the management interface as "rootaccess" in order to enable the root account.
with the command userconfig --show list the account name * with default password.
if the switch was delivered by EMC, root account is set to enable, but then you need to ask by EMC for password.

with FOS 8.0 and forward there is no factory user any more. Only root, admin and user account are setup as default users.
To enable (if not enabled by OEM) access for the root account you must login as admin and run the following command
admin$ rootaccess --set all
for allowing root login via ssh/telnet/wtc and to limit to console only
admin$ rootaccess --set consoleonly
