Hi @Oliver,

ZD password can be recovered only:

  • If we have a ZD debug or back up file which was taken out after changing the password, then from  those files support team can extract the username and password for you with a support case.

  • You can only reset an existing ZD password from a ReadWrite(RW) SNMP string.

    If you have details of the write SNMP community string available and a SNMP server which can be used to set new admin password, commands on SNMP server.
  • snmpset -v 2c -c SNMPSTRING <DEVICEIP> <OBJECTNAME/OID> s "abcd" {For string}

    e.g. (to change password to string test)
    root@SNMPSERVER:~# snmpset -v 2c -c Write123 . s "test"


If we do not have information on SNMP, any such files from the ZD then the only way is to hard reset the ZD
