Factory reset S5300?

Latest reply: Jul 19, 2016 19:19:17 5430 2 0 0


I bought a heavy used S5300 switch.

Now I wounder there I reset the switch to factory settings, the seller didnt remembered the password he used.

Is there a physical reset, like on my Mikrotik RP750? Cant find anything.

Factory reset S5300?

Okey, I understand.

I thought I wound start with CCENT/CCNA, I guess it will be in the beginning of the courses from Cisco, about the instuctions for the console and how to log in to the switch.

Do you know if there is some "newbie" tutorial to start with?

Thanks /Jonas

Hi Zezoz,

there is no physical reset button on S5300,

you have to connect your switch via console cable, you boot up your switch and you press crtl + B to boot on bootrom.

 you type the recovery password, which would be "huawei" or "Admin@huawei" you choose option  reset console password which should be 8 and choose boot from the rom which should option 1.
