password recovery PIX 515

I can't get into our firewall with the password provided. I need to recover the password. What are the procedures?

We have a PIX 515 failover

Re: password recovery PIX 515

If you have failover set, make sure that secondary pix is shutdown during the password recovery procedure. Bring the secondary pix back up only after you are through with the steps on the primary pix and primary pix is working fine.

If this is in production schedule a downtime and only then work on password recovery.

Following link below to do password reecovery:

Hope this helps.
