After upgrading my 2x 6520 switches this morning, with Fabric OS v8.0.2c, all the Factory user accounts had their passwords changed back to factory defult. I was unable to find any reference to this in the release notes and or that the passwords were required to be set back to defult before the upgrade.
I then upgrade to 8.1.1 after changing the paswords back to some more complex and this time the factory accounts held their complex passwords.
Has anyone else had this issue when upgrading to v8.0.2c?
Note the upgrade path was from:
7.4.1b > 8.0.2c > 8.1.1

is it possible that they were on default @ FOS 7.4?
When upgrading to FOS 8.x it is normal to get prompted to change the password during 1st login if it has been on default before.
That's my observation during all my FOS 8 upgrades so far.

about the admin account,
--->>>This also does not explain why the admin account password was reset to factory default as well.
target path is ->7.4.1d/e -> 8.0.2b or higher
FOS 7.4.1d was be addressed Security Fix such account password.
--->>> Note the upgrade path was from:
--->>> 7.4.1b > 8.0.2c > 8.1.1
Where in FOS 7.4.1c or earlier is not fixed.

Thank you for the explanation on why the admin PW reset. Whats defect ID for this?
Just in case I have not explained myself on the root account:
Start FOS 7.4.1.b
Root account enabled
Upgrade FOS 8.0.2c
Root account still enabled
Password: Factory Default

there is no defect associated with this behavior and I still believe it is related to the security strengthening in FOS 8.x.
I believe you will not see this PW change enforcement again.

I am having the exact same issue on multiple remote switches, but none of the default passwords work!
Is there another way to get on to the switches?
Can I use a lower 8.0 and then go to 8.1.1 to retain the passwords that I have set?
