L0 Member

I am new to PA and bought a device and configured it but forgotten my password.

i went to maint mode and did factory reset to restart my config again

my device entered PA-HDF login: i tried admin/admin and getting incorrect password

any advise how to overcome this

i also run disk test and of which all results attached

when you see PA-HDF that means the system is still booting up. All you need to do is wait a few minutes and the login prompt will change to the normal one (device model as hostname)

after that you'll be able to login with the default username and password
