We came across on old Nortel 1424T at my job. We're trying to log into it but nobody can remember the passwords. Does anyone know of any password reset technique or a way to hard reset the system to default factory settings?

Hello

 

Normally there is some kind of option to interrupt the boot process and enter a recovery console where you can reset it.

You will need to connect with a console cable to do it (RS-232, COM port cable or other words might be used for the same thing)


I am not familiar with Nortel so I cannot say exactly how it is done. Perhaps someone else with more knowledge of the brand can chime in?

Hth!

Have a look at one of the user guides returned here:  https://support.avaya.com/search-landing/?query=passport+1424T

 

(Avaya now owns what was Nortel).  Also, I had trouble with that search under a browser using Ghostery and Adblock Plus, but it returns a number of results when I plugged it in to MS-Edge, which is my "naked" browser for occasions such as this.
