Re: recovering MP console password

Check this tutorial. http://web.tampabay.rr.com/batcave/GSPinfo.htm

It has invaluable info about MP/GSP devices.

PASSWORDS: HOW TO RESET

3. If all passwords have been forgotten, they can be reset by hitting the reset button on the back panel of the GSP. After the GSP reboots, the local console terminal will display a message for five seconds. Responding to this message in time will allow a local user to reset the passwords.

This will require a local console attached to the local console port of the MP/GSP.
