Huawei Switch console password reset

Today i will discuss about Huawei Switch console password reset / How to Recover Console Port Password in Huawei Switch. In this method Clear the Console Login Password in BootROM and Changing the Console Port Password.


The BootROM allows you to clear the console port password so that the device does not check the password when you log in through the console port. When the device starts, you do not need to enter the console port password and all configurations are loaded as normally. After the device starts, change the console port password and save the configuration.

NOTICE:

  • You must restart the device to display the BootROM menu, which results in service interruption. Migrate services to a backup device and perform this operation in off-peak hours.
  • Set a new password immediately after you log in to the device by clearing console login password.
  • Do not power off the device during the operation.
  • If the switch has two MPUs, remove the standby MPU before restarting the switch. After the switch completes restarting, install the standby MPU.

Procedure:

Connect a PC to the device through a serial/console cable and restart the device. When the message “Press Ctrl+B to enter Boot Menu…” is displayed, press Ctrl+B and enter the password (Admin@huawei.com by default). The BootROM main menu is displayed.
