[rescue] Password reset on SMC TigerSwitch 8624T

Not the usual old equipment rescue, but there are enough networking folks
here I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction for an answer.

A friend of mine recently picked up three used SMC TigerSwitch 8624T GigE
switches and gave me one in a fit of generosity. It appears to be fully
functional, with the small problem that when they were never reset to
factory configuration, so I don't have administrative access to it.

Looking for directions on resetting these units has given no real results;
there are a couple of defaults (admin/admin; admin/super; guest/guest,
enable/super) that people suggest but none of them work.

Anyone here know any tricks? I can always opt for the "return to SMC" route,
and since it's a new acquisition it's not like I'm depending on it for any
sort of networking. Still, I'd rather take a few minutes to tweak it and get
it running.

Thanks in advance for any tips or advice.
