(OP)
On a foundry 4802 cf switch I boot the switch and enter cntl u I am prompted for a password. What password is this that the switch is looking for? enable? factory supplied pswd? I need to delete the current config and can not seem to get to a point in the recovery process that allows me in as described in the manuals or this group. Thanks V

RE: more questions

Recovering from a lost password:
Start CLI session over the serial interface to the device.
Reboot the device.
At the initial boot prompt at system startup, enter "b" to enter the boot monitor mode.
Enter "no password" at the prompt (you cannot abbreviate this command).
Enter "boot system flash primary" at the prompt. This command causes the device to bypass the system password check.
After the console prompt reappears, assign a new password.
