Factory Reset On Adtran 916e

Factory Reset On Adtran 916e

Factory Reset On Adtran 916e

A customer has an ADTRAN 916e that they purchased a while ago and wanted to use for a different office location but the person who set it up has left the company and didn't leave any documentation.

I have physical access to the unit but when I connect up with Hyperterminal to the Craft port none of the standard passwords they use for their network equipment work.

At this point since we are changing locations and uses for the unit it doesn't matter if we lose all the configs in it so I want to reset to factory default.

Looking at the docs from Adtran they are saying there is no way to reset the unit unless you can log into it.

Does anyone know ANY way I can reset the password or just reset the unit to factory default?

RE: Factory Reset On Adtran 916e

found it.

Attach your serial cable to the CRAFT port and during boot you can hit 'escape' to enter bootstrap mode.

From there just enter 'erase startup-config' and that will do it.

If you want to upgrade the firmware while you are at it, here's a webpage that can tell you how to do that.
