root "Account is disabled - see Account Administrator"

Dear All
I am having System in cluster and the root account is disabled (probably due to lot of attempts for login) and in /etc/passwd it is showing
root::0:3:,,,:/:/sbin/sh (((for root))) in Primary node.

root:1zr9vcjiKgMi.:0:3::/:/sbin/sh ((for root in secondary node))
Problem is that I am able to login in secondary node as root and unable to rlogin without password (Earlier I can rlogin without password)
Other accounts are ruuning as usual too.
Please suggest on the same How to Enable root account.
Thanks is advance....

Shalom,

Login at the console.

That will reset the root password.

If that does not work, reboot the system, intervene at the boot prompt.

hpux -is

Single user boot will let you run the passwd command as root.

SEP is right, you need physical access the server or a phone to call someone who does if you don't have the console setup.

Once you log in locally to the server console you'e problem will be solved.
