Hi ,


what is your FOS version ?

I attached  the password recovery document in PDF form. It is for FOS v7xx.  & FOS 8

You will need to reboot the 6510 twice during this procedure.
Go to Table 1. which will direct to you page 14. The Boot Prom password will need to be recovered first. Then once that is done the root password can be recovered.
