Avaya/Nortel 5520 password

Avaya/Nortel 5520 password

Afternoon all, I have some 5520's that were transfered to me from another unit and when I power them on they come up to the startup password. I tried to wipe the flash but everytime they boot they still come up to the password. Is there anyway to clear these outside of contaqcting the previous admin?

thanks in advance

Try RW / secure.



RE: Avaya/Nortel 5520 password

Is the syntax just like that rw / secure?

RE: Avaya/Nortel 5520 password

No sorry, my mistake ... this is for secure versions requiring login + password.
Just try rwa, or secure, as a password.
