Pinned topic Nortel Layer2-3 GbE Switch Module admin password change problem

‏2013-05-24T10:57:42Z |

Hi,

We are using pair of Nortel Layer2-3 GbE Switch Modules in our blade center chassis. 

PCBA Part Number  317857-C
FAB Number  EL4512029
Manufacturing Date  0808
Hardware Revision  2
PLD Firmware Version  1.0
Software Rev  1.4.2 (FLASH image1) 

 

When we changed a password from default admin/admin and applied settings, we unable to log in to the web interface anymore. However, we  able to login to the swich using telnet with new password. I tried to disable/enable HTTP access, but without luck. Switch reboot is not helping either. Web interface keep asking for password, even when I changed it back to admin.

How I can reanimate http access? Thanks for any tips!

    I had no issues changing the admin password then logging into the web interface with the new password on a nortel L2/3.  Please provide step by step what you are doing to change the password
