Reset Equallogic Password via CLI

April 20, 2018 Jordansphere Equallogic

Scenario:

I wanted to re-delpoy a standalone Equallogic 6210X but had neither the password or even the IP address of the device

Resolution:

Steps 

1) Console on the Equallogic and powercycle the device

2) Press CTRL+P on boot

3) Use the following commands:
EQL> setenv RESETPASSWORD 1
EQL> reload

eql_reset1

This should reset the password back to defaults =>
Username: grpadmin
Password: grpadmin

4) Reset the password
account select gpradmin passwd

You will then be prompted for the new password
