Reset a Foundry ServerIron XL password

Previously I posted a blog about completely resetting a Foundry ServerIron XL
But what if you only want to reset the password?
This is how it works..

Connect with a serial cable to the Foundry ServerIron XL.

1) Unplug the Switch
2) Plug the switch back in, and be immediately ready to:
3) Hit b within 2 seconds, to enter into the boot monitor
4) Type:

no password
boot system flash primary

5) Foundry will boot up, now

FastIron> enable
No password has been assigned yet…
FastIron#

6)Set a new password

Conf t
FastIron (config)# enable super-user NewPassword
FastIron (config)# write memory
