Changing a user's password When a user's password expires or it is forcibly made to expire by an administrator, the user is presented with a prompt or window during the CMS login process that allows the entry of a new password. The following procedure allows an administrator to cause a userÆs password to expire so that the user must enter a new password upon their next login attempt. Steps If a user forgets their password, perform the following procedure:
1. From the CMS Main Menu, highlight the Commands (F3). CMS displays the Commands menu.
2. Select UNIX (r) system. The screen clears and a $ prompt is displayed.
3. Enter the following command: su
4. At the Password: prompt, enter the root password. The # prompt is displayed.

6. Enter a new password for the user. Solaris displays the # prompt.
7. Enter the following command: passwd -f <userid> (Where <userid> is the ID of the user with a new password.) Solaris displays the # prompt.
The passwd ûf command will force the user to change their password the next time they log in to CMS.
