You need atleast a prof_admin account/password to reset/recover the admin password.

If you are running older version (I belive 5.x or below) the maintainer account can be used. Below document explains the procedure

I searched  a lot on this. The only option available is to reimage the device as said here - https://fortinetweb.s3.amazonaws.com/docs.fortinet.com/v2/attachments/2c7f658f-7d40-11ec-a0d0-fa163e...

If you don't have prof_admin , then we need to re-image the device.
