Do you think that we dont search for it in google? please, if you are not going yo be helpful, then hold back. The switch is in production right now, and to do a reboot we need a maitenance window. So its important to have the RIGHT procedure to reset the password in that moment.

Mister,

 

--->>> Do you think that we dont search for it in google? please, if you are not going yo be helpful, then hold back. 

 

keep calm.

 

First at all, this is a free community, and whe try to help here everyone.

 

Second:

 

-->>to do a reboot we need a maitenance window.

 

this is you problem and not our problem.

 

continue:

 

-->> So its important to have the RIGHT procedure to reset the password in that moment.

 

Sure, the switch was supported by the OEM Vendor in such case from IBM, ( except you have a acctive maintenance Contract with Brocade ) so you can open a call and get Support with the Vendor.

 

All the best

Dont try to put off my words. I was explaining why we need a trusty procedure. This response is not not the one that should give a moderator...
