Matthias,

we discussed at many time such password reset for VxWorks based switch, you may find answer here in the community.

password by default are:

for admin = password

for root = fibranne

fivranne with character "v" is not a default password by brocade this is incorrect.

default pasword for account "factory" is "password"

the only way to reset the password ist to connect the switch to another switch trough ISL, both switch must be configure in same subnet.

when the ISL is established, you can try with the passwddefault utility to reset the password.
