have you check the link below:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Networking_Hardware/Routers/Q_22703071.html

here is the quoted solution:
"Boot system into single user mode.To do this reboot or power cycle the machine, When you see the line " boot:" you must enter "-s" before it goes into multiuser mode. (you have about 10 seconds)
* on a ip330 or ip650 you need to type boot -s at the BOOTMGR prompt*

After it boots, it will ask you "Enter pathname of shell or RETURN for sh:", press Enter key.

Type "/etc/overpw"in the # prompt.It will ask if you want continue, type "y".

 /etc/overpw will ask you to set a password.

Continue to boot to multiuser mode.

Login as admin. If a password is required, you will be asked for one.

Use the dbpasswd command to set a new password:
nokia[admin]# dbpasswd admin newpassword "
(Note that the " is necessary to specify (NULL) as the old password.)
Then, save this new password to the configuration file so that you can log into Network Voyager:
nokia[admin]# dbset :save"
