For the Brocade switches running FOS firmware 2.x or 3.x there is a special Brocade firmware image you need to recover the password. This software is required if the password is lost. If you have Brocade 5.x or 6.x and the Boot Prom password has not been set (different from the switch password), then it can be recovered by accessing the switch setup with a local console serial connection.
