Rebooted the DELL Switch to single mode slot 1 (recovery mode) and changed the root password successfully. However, when it boots up it goes to the login page which I  cannot access.  Did that also to slot 2, same effect.

The switch is  x86:

Linux cumulus 3.2.65-1+deb7u2+cl2.5+2 #3.2.65-1+deb7u2+cl2.5+2 SMP Mon Jun 1 18:26:59 PDT 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Any ideas ?

ps. newbie onboard to Cumulus

I take it the default user 'cumulus' does not exist, or password was changed there too? If so, and the password recovery is not working, it would be a good idea to open a support case, and let us take a look at it. :)

Cheers,
