Question Nortel 5530-24TFD Password Recovery


We have inherited support of a Nortel network consisting (mainly) of 5530 series switches. The previous vendor, unfortunately, misplaced (read: did not document) the credentials for this switch.

We understand that there used to be a password recovery feature through Nortel that was based on switch serial numbers. As these switches are several years old and Nortel is no more, we are wondering what the procedures might be in order to gain access to the switches again as we are undergoing system wide network upgrades.

Thanks, and please accept my apologies if this post is misplaced.
