Recover root password

I am having HP-UX 11.11 installed on HP Integrity Server rx7640.
Unfortunately my root password is locked due to multiple tryouts with wrong password.
Now i want to recover the password; i am trying to connect to server's console port using Cisco console cable but it is not connecting. i think this cisco cable is not supported, so any advice from where i can get the console cable???

Hi Obaid,

U can try to connect with cable on lan port of MP that is console lan, can access the system, from that console.
U can try by serial console also on MP.

Re: Recover root password

Hi,

U can use cable with serial port at both end,which connects to server and laptop then connect by hyper terminal.
Either U can use with lan port on one side and serial port on other side.
Which connects lan console port on server and serial port on laptop.

Re: Recover root password

Apart from cable issue, after you got connection to console:

# run modprpw -k root

to unlock!
