I have a newly opened from the box Allied Telesis Port.

After some configuration, I was locked out due to timed out. I have already setup the Login with correct login and managed to login before.

But now I am locked out. Is there a way to hard reset the Allied Telesis switch again?

According to the manual, you can erase the flash and boot from a clean device:

The next level of security is equivalent to the second one, except that there is no longer any access to the Skip startup script option and to the Special Boot Options section of the bootloader menu, even of the user knows the password.

Instead, there is a new completely erase flash item in the bootloader menu, that now becomes the only option a user has for recovering the switch if the Admin password is lost.
