I was tasked with reconfiguring a Sonicwall TZ100, but the previous admin failed to notate the correct logon credentials. Is there anyway to recover the administrator credentials without having to reset the device and loosing the existing configuration?

Thank you in advance.

Not possible unfortunately. Recovery mode only allows you to boot to the current settings or set back to default settings.
