Logging Onto the
The CLI program provides two different command levels — normal access level
(Normal Exec) and privileged access level (Privileged Exec). The commands
available at the Normal Exec level are a limited subset of those available at the
Privileged Exec level and allow you to only display information and use basic
utilities. To fully configure the switch parameters, you must access the CLI at the
Privileged Exec level.
Access to both CLI levels are controlled by user names and passwords. The switch
has a default user name and password for each level. To log into the CLI at the
Privileged Exec level using the default user name and password, perform these
If this is your first time to log into the CLI program, you should define new
passwords for both default user names using the "username" command, record
them and put them in a safe place.
Passwords can consist of up to 32 alphanumeric characters and are case sensitive.
To prevent unauthorized access to the switch, set the passwords as follows:
Power on the switch.
After the system completes the boot cycle, the logon screen appears.
To initiate your console connection, press <Enter>. The "User Access
Verification" procedure starts.
At the Username prompt, enter "motorola. "
At the Password prompt, also enter "admin. " (The password characters are not
displayed on the console screen.)
The session is opened and the CLI displays the "Console#" prompt indicating
you have access at the Privileged Exec level.
Open the console interface with the default user name "motorola" and
password "admin" to access the Privileged Exec level.
Type "configure" and press <Enter>.
Type "username guest password 0 password, " for the Normal Exec level, where
password is your new password. Press <Enter>.
