Re: Change LAN Console user and password

Hi Charles,

GSP admin account ?

PASSWORDS: HOW TO RESET
There are several ways to reset passwords in the GSP:
1. In the SO command, change individual users
2. In the DC command, choose \"Reset Security configuration\"
3. If all passwords have been forgotten, they can be reset by hitting the reset button on the back panel of the GSP. After the GSP reboots, the local console terminal will display a message for five seconds. Responding to this message in time will allow a local user to reset the passwords.
Note that the user information as well as the passwords are erased in methods 2 & 3.

Hope this helps,
Robert-Jan

Re: Change LAN Console user and password

Hello,

As you can see, it asked me a password:

[bumped user - ]
cm
Password:
Login incorrect
login: root
Password:
Login incorrect
login: Admin
Password:

GenericSysName [HP Release B.11.00] (see /etc/issue)
Console Login:

In fact, I want to change root password and also add new users to LAN Console interface but system request new password I don't know.

What am I doing wrong?
Should reset GSP?

Hello Enrico,

I didn't copied all screen by error. Here you're completed screen:

Service Processor login: root
Service Processor password:




Hewlett-Packard Guardian Service Processor

(c) Copyright Hewlett-Packard Company 1999-2001. All Rights Reserved.

System Name: lc-osiris



[Read only - use ^Ecf for console write access.]

[bumped user - ]
cm
Password:

As you can see, I'm into Service Processor, but when I try to execute cm command system asks me for a password.

Thanks for your help.
