Or there is always the over-worked, in house IT person who ends up
forgetting the password for what ever reason - what does he do now?

Being overworked is understandable, failing to keep an encrypted copy of all your passwords in case you forget is not, fire him. (Take a look at PasswordSafe from www.counterpane.com 448bit blowfish encrypted storage) However if this item is like most hardware I've worked with, there will be a reset jumper or backup battery you can mess with inside the case that will clear all of the memory.
