Hi @andrewk ,


Factory reset should do the trick. Make sure to wait long enough for the correct prompt to appear (Default username and password of Admin-Admin Does Not Work After Factory Reset ) :


An example on the PA-3050 is shown below.

  1. 3050 login:
  2. PA-HDF login:
  3. PA-3050 login:

When the prompt displayed is #3, then the device is ready to accept the default username/password to allow login.


Is it possible to enter "maint" from console? If so, is it possible to do factory reset using other versions?


Kind regards,
