If you have no LSM installed on your system then you don't have to give the lsmbstartup command.

In v5.1, you better give following comands
>>> boot -fl s
# /sbin/mountroot
# /sbin/bcheckrc
# run the passwd command now


f.y.i.
/sbin/lsmbstartup starts the Logical Storage Manager (LSM) during reboot.
--> man lsmbstartup.
To err is human, but to really faul things up requires a computer
