Masterpassword for unlock user screen

hi admins,

at my time at the university, the system admin had something like a "masterpassword" to unlock the screen of the students.

so how does this work?

Thanks

Micha

Re: Masterpassword for unlock user screen

The root password will unlock "the screen", assuming that we're talking about a CDE screen lock.
