RETAIN tip: H196648

Symptom

The default login for a Brocade 4 Gigabit (Gb) or 8 Gb switch module is documented in the switch installation and User's Guide as follows:

  USERID with password = PASSW0RD

Brocade changed this beginning with firmware Operating System (OS) version 6.2.0e. The new default login is as follows:

  admin with password = password
