RE: Compaq SW3322 Password Recovery

Here is a method to clear the passwords on Compaq SW3322, 3323, and 3324 switches:

1.  You have to have firmware 2.00.07 or higher.  (If you don't, go to enterasys.com and search support for firmware for the ELS100-24TX).

2.  Telnet to switch

3.  Reset switch and hit enter any time to set the baud rate of the Local Management connection

4.  Once topology discovery is complete, hit the CTRL and P keys three times.

You will see >>>>>> System Port Loopback Test. . . . . .--> Pass.

5.  They you will see, "Are you sure (y/n)".  Hit Y for yes.

6.  The unit will continue to boot up and clear the password.
