CBX-500 Password Recovery

CBX-500 Password Recovery


My company recently purchased a used CBX-500. However, the supplier does not know (or is unwilling to find out) what the login credentials are. I've done a search and found that the master password is supposed to be "cascade" with any 3 digiti username. However, this is not working for us.

Is there another way to recover a username/password combination that will allow us to control the shelf?

We have a few different revisions of the 11411B Switch Processor 40 card and a 11023F Connector Card.

I have been able to connect via serial port to the 11411B and get the login prompt.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, in advance,


Derek Stoparczyk
