Password Reset on Extreme Summit 48


We have an Extreme Summit 48 that was shipped to us, but we need to reset the password. I thought I'd post here to see if anyone knows how to reset the switch to default settings clearing out any existing passwords.

I figured that someone here has undoubtedly done this before and would have a quicker answer for us than trying to comb through all of the PDF files on Extreme's website.

Thanks for any assistance.

That is the link I used awhile back, works good. Remember the summit 48's are a bit old / no real support for them, they are great switches so long as you leave them at 100mbps, don't try to play with rate limiting, it seems to slow the switch's down to a crawl.

I bought an extreme 48 too. After an exhaustive search I came to the conclusion it was impossible to reset the password without paying Summit ~$500 for a service contract.

No worries, it is possible, I have removed the pw off 3 48's and 1 1i. when I am at the dc tomorrow or the next day I will play with the spair 48 we have and post the exact way I did it.

I"d be real interested in this too. Have the same issue, but with the Summit 24, and $500 is too much, considering what these are going for on ebay. We've had one in the office for over a year now that we can't get into.

I just scanned over that site, that isn't how I reset the password. Try this, Connect the null modem cable, open up the terminal, reboot the switch and just as you do that press the space bar a few times, this will prevent the switch from booting, from there type d then f the swtich will boot with default settings, use the username admin with no password to get it, change the pw for admin then "save" reboot and your good to go. this is all off my head, I will test it tonight.
