    I don't think you'll be lucky with this.

    As far as I know, you can only reset whole Netscreen to the factory default,
    therefore loosing whole configuration.
    There is also a caveat. Asset recovery is available only if your Netscreen
    has ScreenOS 2.6.1 or higher and it is possible to disable that (unset admin
    hw-reset). In that case you'll have to send box to Netscreen.

    You can read more information about this at:
