Re: recover the server

Have you tried booting into LVM maintenance mode(hpux -lm)?  I don't recall if that requires a password or not.

 

If you can come up that way, then just activate VG00, mount your file systems and edit the /tcb/files/auth/r/root file to remove the password so you can reset it.

 

Remember that the line should wind up looking like this for no password.
