I am new here and I just created my account days ago. I was ask to configure an FAS 270c and DS14-MK2 here at the office. I am also new to this technology, but I was able to have it up and running last week without error based on the LED's of the machine, both FAS270 and DS-14
My porblems is that, I am prompted by a username and password which the people here does not know about.
My question is, How can you or I reset the username/password combination of an ONTAP system.
Hope to hear from you on this matter.
Thanks very much in advance.

The only way I know how to change a root password is to reboot the filer.
You can just power cycle the filer since you can't login to type reboot.
Press Ctrl-C to display the boot menu when prompted to do so.
The storage system displays the
following boot menu:
1) Normal Boot
2) Boot without /etc/rc
3) Change Password
4) Initialize all disks
4a) Same as option 4, but create a
flexible root volume.
5) Maintenance mode boot
Choose 3 to change root password...
I would also set security options for
options security.passwd.rules.maximum 14
options security.passwd.rules.minimum.alphabetic 6
I hope this is helps

Thanks very much for your assistance on this one. I have reset the account already.
Though I hit option number "3" for the password change, I did got a series of "CFE>" prompt at first, for about 5 reboot or tries finally I was able to change it.
Thanks once again and more power to you guys.
All the best!
