Re: account disabled

if you can login in single user mode as root use:
# /usr/lbin/modprpw -k root

to unlock root account.

Re: account disabled

Try 2 things
1. Use /sbin/passwd to change the password (i hope it doesn't ask there)
2. Edit /tcb/files/auth/r/root file and replace the :u_pwd= field to look something like :u_pwd=:\
Then run the passwd command, it wont ask for old password then

Hi Gurumanickam,

Use system console to login with root user and then change "root" password.
