Re: forget Systempassword

Valentin,
Try the following

1. Shutdown your system

2. While at the >>> prompt try to bring up
the system "Min Boot" or "Conversational
Boot"
>>>boot -flags 0,1

3. When you come upto SYSBOOT prompt, issue
the following commands
SYSBOOT>SET/STARTUP OPA0:
SYSBOOT>SET WINDOW_SYSTEM 0
SYSBOOT>SET WRITESYSPARAMS 0
SYSBOOT>CONTINUE

4. Now run the startup from $ prompt
$@SYS$SYSTEM:STARTUP

5. Next issue the following commands from
the $ prompt
$ run sys$system:authorize
UAF>modify system/pass=
UAF>exit

There is another method i.e using UAFALTERNATE this method basically sets the UAF to a UAF file different than your existing one and once you boot up...you can do the rest.

If you don't preceed the call to STARTUP.COM by a SPAWN (as suggested in the FAQ), you will be logged out when STARTUP ends.

Re: forget Systempassword

Hi,

And if your sylogicals.com has a line something like this, then UAFALTERNATE option will not work.

$define sysuaf sys$system:sysuaf.dat

You then have to boot using set/startup OPA0:, then modify sylogicals.com to comment the above line, then you can use UAFALTERNATE.

HTH,
Thanks & regards,

Re: forget Systempassword

Use the SET/STARTUP=OPA0: as described in the FAQ as it is reliable.
