Lost tape drive password

Dear all,

We are using HP MSL G3 Series tape library drive for a while and now we lost the password and we are unable to open the Mailslots.

We have physical access to the device, is there any way we could reset the password or open it somehow?

Your help would be really appreciated

Thank you in advance

Just open a hardware case in the hp support, they can give you a temporal password based on the serial number and a parameters from the ocp
