I've gotten hold of a D-Link DGS-3324SR that's going to replace my old dumb switch at home. Problem is that the seller can't remember the passwords, and D-Link give me the backdoor account without some kind of a reciept. Is there a way of resetting this thing without using the backdoor account, or a way to generate the backdoor password? D-Link said that it's a combo of the MAC and possible the name of the switch.

This appears to be the user manual to the device- http://www.manualowl.com/m/D-Link/DGS-3324SR/Manual/157365

According to the manual, if you can do a hard reset on the device (by pressing a physical reset button), it should restart with no username or password. pg 25

Hey, thanks for the answer. There are no physical reset buttons on this device. I even checked inside for jumpers and whatnot. Where in the manual did you read this? (It's a beast) –  alu Jul 6 '12 at 14:18
It talks about the username and password on pg 25 –  Sepero Jul 6 '12 at 15:55

It is possible to reset this device, if you could manage to get it into a Stack as a slave device.

You need another D-Link DGS-3324SR with a higher Mac-Adresse or you have luck and the box priority is higher than your Commander Switch
