Resetting Brocade VDX 6740T

I recently picked up a Brocade VDX 6740T off Ebay, and I need a little assistance in resetting the default users and passwords. Admittedly, this purchase was a gamble, as it was listed as For Parts, with the stipulation that it runs but "we don't know the passwords".

Having done some homework, I ran across a couple of useful articles, linked below, however after following them, I am still denied access over the serial port with what should be the default username and password of... admin and password. The switch so helpfully tells me about a security violation, caused by an attempted login over the serial port, with an incorrect login.

At this point I have tried the procedure on both of the OS partitions, but neither has resulted in allowing me access; so either I made a mistake in copying user.db.default file over the user.db file at some point, or the switch's previous owner(s) did. I was wondering if anyone had an unaltered version of the user.db.default file available, and would be willing to share it? Any assistance here would be greatly appreciated, else I will chalk this gamble up in the loss column and learn from the experience.

Here's the article I was following: Password Recovery for VDX6740 | Extreme Networks Support Community
Resetting just the root user: Connectrix Brocade VDX: Recovering the ROOT and other users password for Brocade VDX switch. | Dell US

The link at Dell is the right procedure. Did you get to the point where you use noscli and set the password for admin and user? root password is "fibranne" not "password".

It would help if you have your console log.

Unfortunately I have not been able to log in with either the root, admin or even just user logins with the either of the default passwords, fibranne for root, or password for admin & user. The next time I'm playing at my bench I'll post the exact message about the failed login attempts.

I had a similar issue with my 6740. I'll look and see if I still have the putty logs from when fohdeesha helped me out since I don't remember what it all entailed. Not sure if the thread I had put in of the resolution in it or not.

I don't still have the logs but know that this is likely doable. I'm just not the person that is experienced enough to help more. If you don't care about licenses you could flash a new firwmare to it via USBBOOT.

License keys already applied are displayed during boot. Just make it a habit to save your console logs.

It seems many VDX 6700s sold on eBay have 6.0.x installed. The Extreme site allows people who don't have a support contract but a free login to download 7.0.2.

Noob question: is there a way to backup licenses? I have a switch with NOS 4.x and want to update it, and don't want to loose port upgrade license. Is it stored on internal CF card or somewhere else?

like he said, they're displayed during boot. just watch the boot output/log, the entire license string (one or more) will be displayed. that's the whole license. if for some reason it becomes unlicensed, you can just that string to re-install them with the license add command Q A: Licensing on VDX | Extreme Portal

Maybe there were no port licenses installed?
But I remember that 'show license' (or similar) command showed something. I haven't saved that.

I've bought a headache. With ancient firmware, only 24 10G ports, failing CF card. And, of course, there's RS232 interface in mini-USB connector, which could be unsafe if you plug it in your PC's USB port. I love proprietary stuff!

Well, the firmware can be taken care of easily enough either by the one klui mentioned or one of the several that are in my Google drive.

I don't see your license in that output, but there are "fixes" for that. ;)

Your switch has no additional licenses besides what the SKU comes with. If there are any it would be displayed after "[NSM-1019] ... Interface ... is administratively up." Look for "license key". show license won't display the license key, only what licenses are active.

Thanks for this tip about licenses, it's still cheapest option for me, if invested time not counted.
