Re: Enabling the disabled root account

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately i could not open the users section in SAM. I am getting the below error, but I am able to open all other things in SAM, even groups.

"UNEXPECTED EXIT: process LANG=C /usr/sam/lbin/samx -C -p 7971 -s users /usr/sam/lib//ug.ui exited with a non-zero exit status.

sh: 8080 bus error (coredump)
"

any suggestions

Log in with alternate root account.
Is system in trusted mode??
/usr/lbin/getprpw -m lockout root

/usr/lbin/modprpw -k root -> to unlock it.

Shalom Madhu,

Log on with root at the console if permitted and it will become undisabled.

Thanks for your suggestions..

"/usr/lbin/modprpw -k root" command did the trick.

I am able to login with root now.. but still I am getting the above mentioned error whenever i try to open users menu in SAM.

Any inputs.
