    We have a DCX Brocade SN8000B QK710A 8-slot San Director.  The root (reserved) password was set at installation.  It's been 2 years and the password is lost.  Per our security management policy we need to be able to recover this password.  Can anyone provide a way to recover a lost "root" password.  We are on v7.0.0c.  Thank you.
