> Hi All,
> We have a Netapp EF540 that has a management password set. Long story
> short I would like to reset the management password where the original is

> For 6.xx Controller Firmware releases:
> 1. Exit SANtricity and/or any active SMCli session.
> 2. Log in to the controller shell using rlogin or a serial connection
> (either controller works).
> -> loadDebug
> -> clearSYMbolPassword
> -> unld “ffs:Debug”
> 3. When the GUI is re-launched, it will be accessible and no longer
> For 7.xx and 8.xx Controller Firmware releases:
> 1. Exit the GUI and run the following shell commands on the Controller:
> -> loadDebug
> -> setSAPassword_MT ""
> -> unld "Debug"
> This will set the password to an empty string.
> 2. Remove the array from the Enterprise Management Window and re-add it.
> When the GUI is re-launched, it will be accessible and no longer
> 3. Re-access the array.
