is it possible to use SNMP to change a forgotten admin password ? I changed the PW and forgot to make a note of it - oops

What I would do though is:
Take the backup copy and edit it and remove the entire management policy section
Factory reset AP (login: reset/FactoryDefault)
Enter new password when prompted
Enter: config t
Copy and paste the edited backup config (with the removed management policy) at the prompt: (config)#
Scroll back through all the pasted entries and make sure that none of them caused an error. If there is an error somewhere, reply back here or try to understand why that particular entry caused the error and fix it.
Enter: commit write (This will then save the pasted running config into the startup-config)
Reboot the AP: reload
Login using your new password and check the config to make sure it’s what you pasted.
Save your new password somewhere safe. :)
