New to me switch from eBay. Looks hardly used, but does not appear to be at default configuration.So have you reset this switch and followed the OP to set it up - or is this one you have inherited with unknown settings ?
Try the base firmware reload from scratch - assuming a restart gives you something to work with and allows you into the initial boot screen.
Have you looked at flow control settings and is this a known console cable you are using - or just a spare cable lying around ?
I am trying to follow the guide to reset as configuration (password) is unknown. I have not been able to access the serial console yet.
The management (network) port pulls an IP Address from DHCP. I can reach the web interface, but again password is unknown and not any of the defaults I have found referenced online.
Flow control is set to none. The console cable was new in a package of accessories that came with the switch. (Power cords, rack hardware, stacking cables)
Going to go try again a couple of different ways...
