Re: How to recover root password in Trusted system HP-UX 11i
Hi Hung,

there are 2 ways of doing it. I have used one of them successfully.

1) Load fresh OS on a new disk, import the vg00 here, mount the root filesystem and remove the root password as indicated by SEP.

I used this method and recovered the system.

2) Another way is try through recovery CD, boot from recovery CD and mount the root filesystem and remove the root passwd.

I first attempted this method and had some problem in my CD. So I took the route of fresh OS on a different disk.

I don't know if there are other ways to recover this. Maybe, somebody else here might provide you a easier, better solution.

With regards,
Mohan.
