Forgot admin login username/password, don't want to reset to factory defaults

We have two 7982 APs in our office.  One is currently deployed and working, the other needs to be.  I need to log into the operational one and copy the settings to the new one, but the admin login/password I have on file from the previous IT staff aren't letting me in.

Because I need the settings from it, resetting it to factory defaults is off the table.  Is there a way into it other than the browser interface, or another default password, etc?

Unfortunately, no... if unchanged, the default uid/pw should be 'super' and 'sp-admin'. Once changed by a new admin, the new uid/pw is necessary.
