    How to recover password for Adtran 1224-ST

    adal2007 New Member

      Hi,

       

      I'm working for a new company, and they have a Adtran 1224-st switch,  the problem i have is that, it has been running for almost 4 years, and the person that made the installation is gone, and he didn't left any information about passwords or usernames.

       

      so, how can i reset the password?

       

      i can enter by hyperterminal but i cant configure anything, because i don't have the password.

       

      my only option is to reset the password, but i don't want to reset the system because i don't want to affect the network, i just want to enter with hyperterminal. or be able to manage the switch with a web browser.

       

      regards,

      Adrian

          Adrian,

           

          Thank you for posting your question on the forum. You can bypass the password on all AOS devices without resetting the configuration, as long as you are able to console into the device. You will simply need to reboot the AOS device, break into bootstrap, and then issue the "bypass password" and "boot" commands. Once the AOS device boots, it will not ask for credentials to log into the unit for that session. You will be able to view the configuration and make any changes, such as reset the password, you need. The guide below outlines the steps to recover and reset the password in AOS:

          Thanks,

                Noor,

                We have this NetVanta 4305 lying on the shelf for years. Now, I want to bring it back to life. I know it was working device at its time. I cannot get into CLI prompt. I am following the instructiuons to connect serial cable from the above (tried six different 9-pin cables) and every time I see device booting normally but it does not react to any keystrokes on the keyboard. I have tried differnet PCs, HyperTerminal and Puttytel - every time I get the same result, I see bootstrap loading, no reaction to my keyboard like escape or enter or anything else. Below is partial output:

                Router (1200890L2)
                Executing bootstrap...
                ram: 268435456 bytes of RAM detected.

                Any advise on what can be the problem and how to get into this device?

                 

                Thank you
