Lost Privilige Password

Someone has changed the password on one of our xyplexs - any ideas how to get into it - I can get access physically to the server as well as signing on.

RE: Lost Privilige Password

You need to reset the unit back to factory defaults.  Here are the instructions for an MX16xx Terminal Servers:


Most of the Xyplex gear uses a similar procedure.  Once reset, you can use the factory admin password.  Also, of course, you will need to reconfigure the box.

RE: Lost Privilige Password

Thanks for the advice - i was hoping i wouldnt have to do that! Whilst i can get on the server but not set the privilige password im going to get the config and make up a duplicate server and swap it out.

All in all total ball ache!!
