I need to upgrade a small network I know nothing about.
The only manageable switch in an Extreme Networks Summit 200, running ExtremeWare 7.3 (from 2005!). Of course, the default admin password has been changed (and nobody has any idea who configured those switches in the first place).
In order to migrate to a newer switch, I need to access the current config of the Summit switch, then translate the config to the new one.
How can I recover the current configuration without knowing the admin password?
I can put the switch offline for some time (out of office hours). I cannot loose the config.
The company does not have any support plan with Extreme Networks.
Using BootROM, I can load default config and boot. Here, I have admin access, but I cannot find a way to dump/recover the primary config of the switch.
There are several ways to recover the config on EXOS available on the web. These methods feature sending/editing the file containing the configuration like here.
However, on my ExtremeWare version, I only have the following commands:
<cr> abort clear configure create delete disable download enable exit
history logout mrinfo mtrace nslookup ping quit reboot restart rtlookup
run save scp2 show ssh2 telnet traceroute unconfigure upload use
upload is interesting, but from the documentation, it can only upload (via tftp) the current config.
There is a single instance on the web of the existence of a hidden debug mode here. However, as the email states, this debug mode needs a deep understanding of the system to be useful.
Here is everything I did until now. Any Extreme guru here to help me out?
