I am having a hard time figuring out admin password for IBM 2005 B16 (Fabric OS v6.10 & Kernel 18.104.22.168)
The service personnel from IBM denied they do not know factory or root password for SAN Switch.
To my surprise, I have to submit my MT and SN to IBM to reset passwords and it's subjected to service charge.
This is truly a frastructed customer experience and felt like being conned. Customer should know all the passwords.
Now I am only left with the option to reset admin password using Boot PROM.
Is there anybody who know default password for root, factory or Boot PROM?
Your help is much appreciated.

To Reset a Boot PROM Password ( Please Note, Boot PROM Password is No a FabOS Password, this are Two different things ),
you need a Special Answer unique File wich can Only be Create from Brocade.
Each Switch have a Different Key.
Any Default Password for the Boot Prom is not available.
Here as Example:
Send the following string to Customer Support for password recovery:
Enter the supplied recovery password.
Recovery Password: YnfG9DDrlFMDVkNM0RkPtg== < Supplied by your support provider
Re-enter Recovery Password: YnfG9DDrlFMDVkNM0RkPtg==
New password: xxx
Re-enter new password: xxx
Again, this is a Example and not a Valid Revory Password File
