CMS R12 Password Changing

How do I change the CMS password for a user? by 98Converter
Posted: 6 Aug 04

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.
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:

4. At the Password: prompt, enter the root password.
The # prompt is displayed.

5. Enter the following command:
passwd <userid>
(Where  <userid> is the ID of the user who needs a new password)
Solaris displays a prompt for the new password.

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.

8. Enter the following command:
Solaris displays the $ prompt.

9. Enter the following command and press the Enter key:
CMS displays the Main Menu.
