Re: Lightstream LS100 Password recovery

The link above is fine for the LS1010 but not the LS100.

Here is how the password should be recovered on that platform:

This is the mostly likely way to do it.

The default password on all new LS100s is "c"

From any mode of console, non-priv works fine-

1. Enter manager mode just > manager

2. You will be prompted for password

(type this as password, do a cut and paste from this mail!)

MU.PT?4U`%4_QYJS

3. Depending on software version, you will get a "new" prompt, like %

4. just say "flush_passwd" (again this depends on Version)

If the above does not work then try this one below...

How to "FIX" a Lost ENABLE Password on an A100 Hyperswitch

From "factory diagnostic" mode you can erase a previously stored password, leaving a Null string, which will prompt you for a new password when entering the priv mode using the enable command:

A100-2#password

Input Old Password: ***Mismatch - password unchanged. (since you don't know the password, this will fail)

A100-2#f

Saving password now

A100-2#exit to return to non-priv mode

A100-2>enable

Input New Password: < Enter your "new" password

Retype New Password:

Saving password now

A100-2#exit

A100-2>en

Input Password:

A100-2#
