How to find out the password for Huawei EchoLife HG8245

Configured today GPON ONT Huawei EchoLife HG8245C to OLT and it was necessary to go to its web interface to change the password on Wi-Fi, and the standard root login and password admin did not fit. I had to perform several manipulations.
Of course, to begin with, connect to any of the LAN ports, wait until the DHCP ONT is turned on, it will give out IP, such as or set it manually.
Connect via telnet to ONT IP, enter login root and password admin.
Then type the following commands one at a time:

cd /mnt/jffs2/
grep admin  myconfig.xml

As a result, the last command gives information about what is happening in the web interface:




Passwords can also be written on the device label. In the settings you can change the password, in this case the user will be useradmin and the specified password.
For HG8245, the standard administrative login and password telecomadmin \ admintelecom, for users – admin/admin. For Chinese HG8245C standard – telecomadmin \ nE7jA%5m.
There may be further passwords for telecomadmin:

Etnernet ports are disabled on ONT Huawei EchoLife

I recently noticed a problem that, when ONT, the Huawei EchoLife HG8110, HG8120 and HG8120R watched the Ethernet ports shutdown about 30 seconds after the ONT was turned on.
At the same time, ONT continued to work, the optical connection did not disappear.
On the Huawei EchoLife HG8110 the link did not disappear, but the interface ONT stopped pinging.

The cause was defective power supplies.

Adding ONT Huawei EchoLife HG8120 and HG8120R

On the test I will use ONT Huawei EchoLife HG8120 (works only in Bridge mode as a media converter) and Huawei EchoLife HG8120R (can work as Router & Bridge, with reset settings has no configuration, so it works the same as HG8120 in Bridge mode).
The standard IP for both models is, the login is telecomadmin, the password is admintelecom.
I will use VLAN 228 for the Internet.

Dying gasp Alarm on Huawei OLT

Sometimes on Huawei OLT you can see Dying gasp Alarm (0x2e11a00b).

Since they often occur, most likely they can be seen by running the commands:

display alarm active alarmid 0x2e11a00b
display alarm history alarmid 0x2e11a00b

I will give an example:

ALARM 531377 FAULT MINOR 0x2e11a00b SERVICE QUALITY 2017-12-06 08:19:27+02:00
ALARM NAME : The dying-gasp of GPON ONTi (DGi) is generated
PARAMETERS : FrameID: 0, SlotID: 5, PortID: 6, ONT ID: 32, Equipment ID:
DESCRIPTION : The ONT is power off
CAUSE : The power supply of the ONT is abnormal
ADVICE : Check the power supply of the ONT and ensure that the power
supply works in the normal state

These alarms occur when power is lost or the power cord is removed from the ONT, at this moment ONT manages to send the Dying gasp message to the OLT.
Dying gasp is also used on many other devices, for example, to correctly terminate the connection.
