wht is the default password for new MDS 95xx switches.

Correct Answer by jordankatzarov about 11 years 9 months ago

As of Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 2.x and later, admin is not the default password for any switch in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family. You must explicitly configure a password that meets the following requirements:


•Is at least eight characters in length


•Does not have multiple consecutive characters (such as abcd or jklm)


•Does not have multiple repeat characters (such as fff or qqdd)


•Does not contain words found in a dictionary


•Contains both upper and lower case characters


•Contais numbers.


And please, RTFM first.

  • Cisco Employee,

Previous to 2.x releases, the default password was admin to username admin.


But, because of security concerns, starting with 2.x, you must use the console connection and assign an admin password that is considered strong. A strong password is defined as the previous post.
