Importance: High

Dear Colleagues,

I am really needing your help.

I`m in a position of not having the password for one of our critical
netscreen 10 firewall.  Does anyone know
of a way to obtain the password? Wiping the configuration 
completely is
not an option. I can also connect via a console cable if necessary.

Any assistance will *greatly* appreciated!

I don't think you'll be lucky with this.

As far as I know, you can only reset whole Netscreen to the factory default,
therefore loosing whole configuration.
There is also a caveat. Asset recovery is available only if your Netscreen
has ScreenOS 2.6.1 or higher and it is possible to disable that (unset admin
hw-reset). In that case you'll have to send box to Netscreen.
