Hi wojciech.marusiak,

Hello Linar,

this switch is inside of Blade enclosure. I can connect to second switch (same model and most likely same FOS version) with default username and password.

FOS (I guess this is firmware version of switch) is v5.3.1a

Hi wojciech.marusiak,

if you can make this switch part of a fabric were passwords are known, resetting passwords is easy.

Contact me offline for step-by-step instructions.

Why offline? That doesn't help the community.

If my guessing correctly you want,

-to merge the switches in a fabric with known uid/pwd combo

-execute a distribute -p PWD (-d for a list perhaps) on the switch with known pwd/uid combo's to push the pwd to all or listed switches.

Hi dion.v.d.c,

your guess is correct but the tricky part here is to temorary merge two 4/24s while preserving both fabric's zone configurations.
