I have been trying to access two Juniper SRX 210 at separate locations. The passwords documented are incorrect, and previous admin says he can’t remember what else they might be. I've tried everything except interrupting start up and disabling the watchdog check.
I know the some Junipers will reset to factory defaults, but so far it appears the SRX 210 will only reset the root password. I tried it on an old SRX 100, and it only changed the password.
Do you happen to know if the recovery function wipes the configuration as well as allowing the password to be changed?
Or does it just allow the root password to be changed while keeping the configuration intact?
