How to reset Password on Dell Powerconnect 5012

I've been doing some searching on the net to discover a method to reset the password on this unit.Essentially, follow the instructions to keep the ESC key during startup I acquire the boot from flash / network option, the boot flash memory merely drives me to the password prompt, boot from the network wants to load the firmware. I figured I load the firmware could kill some of the options (hope) and proceed to load the most recent firmware that worked well, Nevertheless I'm still locked.

To reset the password for the PowerConnect 5012 might attempt to enter the password prompt emergency reset or restore factory default settings and login with default user name "root" and "modify" the default password

Code:
Connect to the switch through the console port physically and reboot the switch.As soon as power is applied, press and hold the ESC key
At the command prompt, type "EmergencyPasswordReset" (uppercase and lowercase without the quotes)
Upon confirmation (Y / N) X, the type
If done correctly, a message indicating that the password has been disabled
Type G and press Enter to restart the switch

Orginaly As I said when I hold down the esc key I acquire the note you wish to upload from.This is what happens when you boot press ESC - This example I pressed F to load from flash memory, if I try to type the "EmergencyPasswordReset" at that point as soon as I start the network startup ,load the firmware.

My mistake was hitting escape after applying the power to change - you have to be extremely rapid to catch! It is much easier to maintain low exhaust hyperterminal. Before you apply the power and hold it down until you acquire the right message.

The difficulty turned out hyper terminal was set to Auto instead of VT100 seems that once you got sufficient text hyperterminal VT100 realized it was time to modify the boot mode Neverthless not in the principle of power up.

Also, keep in mind that X must be a capital X when prompted.

Re: How to reset Password on Dell Powerconnect 5012

Passwords that are trying to restore the PowerConnect 3500 and 6200 ? If the telnet / web interface password for the user account will be deleted and recreated through the console port on the back. If it is the activation password, then one would have to access the start menu on both switches to bypass the activation password.
