3560V2 Default Username and Password

Unanswered Question
Aug 31st, 2009

Wondering if anyone can help, I have run into a problem deploying some of the new 3560V2 Switches.

Under normal circumstances we send unconfigured switches to site, have a tech plug them into the network, allow it to DHCP up an IP address and then configure the switch using express setup through the web front end.

Basically the same procedure as is supplied in the "Catalyst 3560 Switch Getting Started Guide.pdf" Problem is we have just found with the 3650V2's there appears to be an undocumented username and password enabled on the web front end.

We have tried all the well known ones, and had no luck, our integrator hasn't been much help either.

Does anyone know what the username and password for this "Undocumented feature" is?
