I have a sonicwall cdp 2440i that needs a password reset.  I followed the manual but do not see the screen for Authentication Reset.  Has anyone had this problem?

Did this... It blasts right through and does not give me the option of menus.  I do not see Authentication Reset.

hmmm...from what i can see, support needs to be involved with the password reset.  otherwise, I don't know what else to try.  i've requested a moderator review the question and suggest additional zones to get more expert attention.
