I am not able to change root passwd for 3850 switch. ( Fabric OS: v5.3.0)
After entering new password it hung.
Warning: Access to the Root and Factory accounts may be required for
proper support of the switch. Please ensure the Root and Factory
passwords are documented in a secure location. Recovery of a lost Root
or Factory password will result in fabric downtime.
