You can create two levels of access, Manager and Operator. You can do this first via the web interface. Also you can disable web access by no web-management in CLI or by setting Web Agent Enabled parameter to No via we-management.

  • Thank you Moghaddas. I have tried to get to web console but i am prompted for user name and password as much as i do not know them, how can i get in the console without having to set factory default settings? Aug 25, 2015 at 13:40
  • If you have a password already set on this switch, and you have physical access to the switch, press and hold the Clear button (on the front of the switch) for a minimum of one second to clear all password protection. ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software/… Aug 25, 2015 at 14:04
  • Before i do that is it going to clear password protection only or is it going to clear everything on the switch, Such as the IP and the Mac? And for the Password i haven't set any as the switch was configured long time ago. Aug 25, 2015 at 14:27
