For reference the default console only (!) credentials for 3COM/HP switches:
user: admin password:<empty>
user: manager password:manager
user: monitor password:monitor
Serial console connection 19200 baud
7 – Skip current configuration file (Y)
0 – Reboot
Switch will boot from default boot option (firmware) but skip the startup config.file.
This will allow administrator user access to the device using “admin” and <blank>.
This will erase all current settings in Flash memory. Note this does not affect any saved startup file(s). You should still at least set an ip address for the switch as a whole and save to a config file. This way you can ping the switch and access the web interface:
ip address 192.168.0.25x 255.255.255.0
ip route-static 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 preference 60
Comware3: save safely [Y]
Comware5: save safely main force [Y]
This will save the running config in flash memory to a config file.
startup saved-configuration harald.cfg main
This will cause the switch to boot from the saved config file at a next power cycle.
<displays firmware file used at boot time>
<displays saved config file used at boot time after firmware is loaded>
7 – Skip current configuration file (N)
0 – reboot
This will cause the switch to no longer skip the startup config file after the firmware has loaded.
