    If the DB2-server runs on Linux or AIX or some Unix, then become root, from root you can su to the DB2-instance owner.
    You can also as root force a password change for the DB2-instance owner, although you need to know the impact of that (in case that password was stored elsewhere although that is bad practice).

    Better memories? Use a password vault. Passwords are one-way encrypted by the operating system ususally.
