Password Retrieval

A bit of an awkward question and probably not solveable, but is there any way to export & decrypt a password from a SecureCRT session?

I have automated CLI/SSH2 access to servers that I am managing via a local admin account & password. These servers need upgrading wich requires root shell access.

Unfortunately, I can't get past the sudo su - process because I don't know the current admin password. I have tried many, many variations all to no avail.

These servers are not yet in Production but are needed by mid-January 2021.

If there is a safe & secure method to do this, I'd appreciate the knowledge.
