CSCvu90882 - Romvar Bootloop if SWITCH_DISABLE_PASSWORD_RECOVERY and SWITCH_IGNORE_STARTUP_CFG are both set to 1 - 1

Can anyone provide us with a way around this issue with devices on which the password was lost.

The provided workaround stops the boot-loop, but does not help the user with a device recovery.

Turn this feature OFF!

If someone has managed to "crack the password" then the issue is not "just the password" but, rather, someone has managed to gain physical access to your network.  

Finally, a disgruntled employee could significantly use this feature, to great effect, and cripple the network beyond anyone's wildest dreams.
