Dead LAN's hand: IT staff 'locked out' of data center's core switch after the only bloke who could log into it dies

Surely this is a joke

Almost ALL Enterprise grade manageable switches and routers have a password recovery method upon booting the device and having physical access. Dell is no exception.

How they can not recover this device is beyond me. This place sounds sketchy with untrained technicians running everything.
