Problem

Nobody remembers the password for a given admin account. We have another superadmin account that we can log in with.

Solution

Easy: delete the account and recreate it.

Harder: (ie under some circumstances you can't delete the admin account)

config system admin
edit admin
set password SOME-PASSWORD
next
end

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
