[ Default Login & Password ]
Here is default  login passwords of the most Enterasys Switches.
A-Series, B-Series and C-Series Enterasys Switches.
User : admin
Password : [empty]
Try below commends to see current login

Enterasys_A2(SU)-> show system login
Password history size: 0 
Password aging        : disabled  
Username     Access           State  
admin          super-user      enabled 
ro               read-Only       enabled 
rw              read-write       enabled
To add user 'Chris' as a super-user
  Enterasys_A2(SU)-> set system login chris super-user enable
  Enterasys_A2(SU)-> show system login

Password history size: 0
Password aging        : disabled
Username     Access           State
admin       super-user          enabled
ro            read-Only           enabled
rw           read-write           enabled
chris         super-user           enabled
To delete user 'chris' from list

  Enterasys_A2(SU)-> clear system login chris

If you want to change password length 7
  Enterasys_A2(SU)-> set system password length 7

[ Syslog Server ]
While I was testing Splunk, I need to add more devices to Splunk index pages. This example shows how to configure Enterasys Switch to forward syslog message to the server. It's simple and easy to setup.
In this example, server's IP is 192.168.77.13 and UDP port 514 is used. Severity level is 8.

  Enterasys(su)>set logging server 1 ip-addr 192.168.77.12 port 514 severity 8 state enable

To verify

 
  Enterasys(su)>show logging server

IP Address    Facility   Severity      Description  Port  Status 
--------------------------------------------------------------- 1 192.168.77.12    local4    debugging(8)     default     514   enable
If you want to change default value to facility local 5 and severity 5, configure below.

Enterasys(su)>set logging default facility local 5 severity 5
To see currently logging severity levels for all applications on your devices, type below commands

Enterasys(su)>show logging application all

        Application   Current Severity Level

[ Upgrade Firmware ]
As you know Enterasys was named Cabletron company long long time ago. I guess more than decade Cabletron was one of strong vendor on switches market at that time. Due to I had really good experience with Cabletron product, I trust Enterasys's product line. Actually, I installed many Enterasys switches since 2005. Today, I just want to share a tip to upgrade firmware on Enterasys switches. Compare to generic 3rd party switch vendors, Enterasys release new firmware more often. Well, some of people might say due to all lot of bugs, but I like to say "Diligent and effort" (too much?).There are detailed documents from vendor, but this guide would be easier for beginner. Well, lets see what the steps to complete upgrading firmware are.
1. Find out what model of switch you are upgrading and what is current version of firmware running on the switch. Type "Show version" from the prompt.

- Model : C3G124-48
- Firmware : 01.01.02.0007

clip_image005
2. Go to the website "www.enterasys.com" and download proper firmware from the download library. and extract firmware to any folder your tftp server will use.

clip_image007

3. Assign IP address on the Enterasys switch in order to communicate with you computer which is running tftp server.
ex) computer 192.168.1.47, Enterasys switch is 192.168.1.8, default gateway .254

"set ip address 192.168.1.8 mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.254"


clip_image008
4. Ping the Enterasys switch from your computer.

clip_image009
5. Execute tftp server. (If you don't have, just down one from solarwinds)

clip_image011
6. Copy firmware from tftp server

Enterasys(su)->copy tftp://192.168.1.47/c3-series_01.02.04.0005 system:image
- I will take time...to be done (few minutes)

7. From the switch, make sure new firmware is uploaded and check which firmware version is on active.

clip_image012
8. Type to "set boot system c3-series_01.02.04.0005" to booting up switch with new firmware(active).
B2(su)>>set boot system c3-series_01.02.04.0005
Do you want to replace ? (y/n) y
Automatically Enterasys switch will reboot.

clip_image013

9. Confirm now, new firmware is on active status.
