SHA Encryption

I don't have the password for my Netscape Directory Server 4.2 admin logon. I checked up the local.conf file which 
stores the password and found out that it is encrypted with SHA. Is there any way I can decrypt this to get the 
password in plain text?
I also tried to paste the SHA password from another server and pasted it in the local.conf and admpw file but it 
doesn't work, I think it also authenticates from the namespace within the server.
If anyone has any information on this it will be really helpful.
