  2. Telnet to ISY
  3. Enter MAC address as both the userid and password at login prompt
  4. Wait 45 seconds (or until you see "Please connect PLM message")
  5. Plug PLM back in

Note: There is a time-out of 5 minutes for the PLM to get plugged back in. If timed out, the userid and password are not reset.

Retrieving ISY's MAC Address

  2. Versions 2.6 and below: Go to http://your.isy.ip.address:port/0/d
  3. Look for <UDN> (e.g. <UDN>uuid:00:03:f4:02:af:74</UDN>)
  4. The MAC Address is the what follows "uuid:" and before the </UDN> (e.g. 00:03:f4:02:af:74)
  • Early ISY's will have a MAC address which begins with the segments 00:03; these MAC addresses are from NetBurner.
