I used to think recovering root passwords was a difficult process that required getting a serial console connection and a switch reboot. Apparently, I was wrong, and I sure wish someone had told me about this earlier.
All you have to do is build a fabric with a switch with known passwords, then from that switch do
distribute -p PWD -d $target_domain
Doesn't work if there is more than one logical switch on the target chassis, but that is rare and can potentially be worked around.
I am trying as hard as possible not to think about the security implications of this discovery.
