Password recovery

I'm trying to understand the process of recovery a lost aux password on a HP 5120. I get into the boot menu hit option 7 and do the reboot. Then from there I get into the switch I'm able to run the command "more startup.cfg" I can then see my old config and the password is hash. From the instructions I found they say to copy that old config using tftp, but I was wondering is there a way to just copy the startup.cfg into the running one and change my password from there?

Re: Password recovery

I think you can do this:
<HP> sys
[HP] configuration replace file startup.cfg
Answer "No" if ask for save config.

Wait... until you can write again on the CLI... change your password and then save the configuration.

Let me know if you try this.
