In our lab one administrator resigned and had gone with password of Fortigate-60 firewall. When we tried to use this firewall for changing new rules of blocking internet traffic, it was asking old password. I read all material of the vendor but did not get success. On the Internet also we did not get proper help.

Only I understood that login: should be maintainer. But there was problem of the password. I heard that we have to type serial number of the Fortigate-60 box. When I entered serial number of firewall box, it was not working and then I dig out and I got success. I hope these steps will helpful to you. Let me know your feedback.
