Question about SonicWALL PRO 1260 SonicOS Enhanced Firmware (01SSC5876)
If the SonicWALL's admin password is lost, there is no backdoor or other
mechanism to bypass the administrator login. Please note that prefs
files do not contain the admin name and password. So if you reset the
firmware and import a current prefs file, you can gain access using the
default login credentials ('admin' & 'password'). Without a current
prefs file, you must reset the firmware and configure from scratch.
For models running SonicOS (Enhanced or Standard), you can reboot to factory defaults. This resets all settings including the admin name, password and LAN IP address. Import the current prefs file. The configuration is restored and use the defaults 'admin' and 'password' to login.
For models running Firmware 6.X, you must reset the firmware (wipe and upload using the reset procedure). Import the current prefs file. The configuration is restored and use the defaults 'admin' and 'password' to login. The 'Reset to Factory Defaults' button does not reset the admin name, password or LAN IP address for these models
