Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

Lost the password for your Qlogic?  You can TFTP a new firmware file into a 5xxx switch and then do a factory reset while it’s in maintenance mode (follow the instruction exactly as they are in the latest version of the manual for your switch).  Or if you have a serial adapter you can break the boot sequence by using the space bar during boot.  At the prompt use:

factory 1

If you factory reset it then the default IP address will be 10.0.0.1 again and the default password will be back to password.  If you have the password and just want to reset it back to factory defaults then you can use the following steps:
