I recently acquired a Centillion 100 switch. It seems to be functioning fine, but I can't get into the switch itself get into the configuration because of a password.

I've tried google, and can't find any real results for it.

Any backdoor passwords and/or way to reset it without the password?

First time I've ever heard that brand name - they obviously don't exist in Europe.

Have you been able to find any information from the vendor's site ?

They do have a site - don't they ? :roll:

Centillion is a discontinued line of switches that were originally made by Bay Networks, but are now owned by Nortel. I searched their site for a while and couldn't find anything on password recovery. Maybe you can call their tech support, but I'm pretty sure they'll want a contract number. Good luck.

Edit: This took a bit of searching, and I had to switch to looking for Bay Networks Centillion password recovery, but I found something for you. Hope this is it.

jwj nails the problem once again.

Well done on finding the password recovery document. I'm sure Kai will be able to use it to do the same with his switch.

Kai, do let us know how it went!
