Reset Snap Server Admin Password

The following procedure can be used on a Snap Server (tested with 2200) to reset the settings to factory defaults:

  1. Power off the Snap Server (wait for all lights to turn off).
  2. Hold down the reset button while powering the Snap Server on.  Wait for the System and Disk lights to flash in unison.
  3. Release the reset button.
  4. Press the reset button again according to the action you wish to perform:
    • Once to reset the IP address.
    • Twice to reset the Admin password (default is blank).
    • Three times to clear the network settings
    • Four times to clear all settings
    • Five times to initiate FLUP mode (for updates)
    • Six times to boot without mounting hard drives.
  5. Watch the disk light to confirm that it blinks the correct number of times to correspond with your selection.  If it doesnt, repeat step 4.
  6. Press and hold the reset button until the Snap Server resets.
