Hi we have 3 IBM Managed Switches model 8275-326 the problem is that no one can recall the password? does anyone know how to reset this switch or some how bypass the passwords? any help would be much appreciated


RE: IBM Switches

Sorry OdBut, you will have to purchase that information from IBM.  There is no published solution for this problem. I have been trying to break into these units for two years now with no luck.  I do know that the password is stored on the system module in the chip that is closest to the EIA 232 port; however, I do not know what else is stored on that chip (i.e. Serial No., Part No., etc.), because if you are lucky enough to own a chip copier/writer, you could always copy a chip from one that you do know the password to.
