We have a Hitachi SMS 100 storage device that no one knows the password ***** The defaults do not work. How can we reset the password, or blank it out? Going into maintenance mode to do a factory reset requires a password ***** access it.

Hi Sir, I would like to assist you.

Please try,

User: root
Password: storage

If it does not work try,

login = system
pass = manager

Please let me know if you still get the issue.

We have tried those UID and Passwords. They do not work. At one point or another, the information was changed. We are resurrecting this unit to use as a backup device. We know the IP address, we need to factory reset the device. in order to do a factory reset, we go into maintenance mode, and then use a web interface to access the gui. This is where we do not know the password. we have also tried to use the hcs2 software, and without the password, we are unable to connect.

The big question is, how do we factory reset the device if we don't know the password?

Sir, I am not sure about factory reset. I will allow other experts to work on this request.
