I have console access to the server and the documented root password is not functioning. What is the password recovery procedure for a Tectia Guardian 2.0.3 appliance.

The default root password (which is default) is changed with the initial setup wizard (at the same page where you give the admin password for web interface). As the root password also becomes the grub password (preventing the easy change of root password: esc at startup etc.) there is no way to recover the lost root password after that.
