    Dear all, 

    I'm a newbie and stuck with a JH295A switch. All of a sudden I can't access the device via web. Getting time out. 

    I managed to get serial connection via Putty but I can't restore the factory default configuration due to this: 

    Password recovery capability is enabled. To perform this operation, first
    disable the password recovery capability using the undo password-recovery
    enable command in CLI.

    I need a step by step solution to disable this. (including syntax). 

    Thank you in advance for all your help!

    Hi Chris,

    Try this:

    <HPE> system-view
    [HPE] undo password-recovery enable

    I believe these switches are password protected to go into system-view<privileged mode>.

    Which command are you using to restore the factory default configuration?

    Refer pg. 141 from the below link of the user guide for factory-default configuration:

    # Initialize the device.
    <Sysname> initialize
    The startup configuration file will be deleted and the system will be rebooted.Continue?
    Now rebooting, please wait...
