V240 ALOM password recovery ???

V240 ALOM password recovery ???

V240 ALOM password recovery ???

Somehow i cannot override the ALOM password for V240 and this is exactly what i did to my V240.

1) Attach console to Serial Management Port
2) Power on V240 and wait 1 to 2 minutes for a timeout to occur and the system to drop to the "ok>" prompt.
          Please login:
        SC Alert: Host System has Reset
          [wait one two minutes]
        Serial line login timeout, returns to console stream.

        ok> boot

  3) Login CDE as root and password root

  4) Use the scadm command to reset the admin password:

        # cd /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin
      # ./scadm userpassword admin
            password: 1234abcd
   re-enter password: 1234abcd

   5) Power-down V240. Unplug and plug-in power
   6)Please log-in: admin
     password: 1234abcd
     invalid password
     please log-in:

It seems like i cannot set up the new password for admin.

RE: V240 ALOM password recovery ???

Not sure about this, but you may need to reset the sc after.
Worth a go anyway.

RE: V240 ALOM password recovery ???

Yeah, it isn't written until reset.
use scadm, but esacpe back by #.

then resetsc.


RE: V240 ALOM password recovery ???

I already did reset the sc after but i still have the same problem invalid password.

./scadm resetsc

It seems like it only reset to a default state or maybe a beginning state when we set a admin password for sc.

Thank you very much for your replies,

RE: V240 ALOM password recovery ???

Try to login with your new password on the sc,
then use resetsc -y.  I believe that scadm resetsc is a hard reset, I think you want to either use the sc>rsetsc -y or scadm resetrsc -s to get a "soft" reset.

This is only a guess. The only time I couldn't set the password there was some hardware issue that Sun had to fix.


RE: V240 ALOM password recovery ???

I cannot login with a new password on the sc. It keeps saying invalid password.

# ./scadm resetrsc -s

It doesn't help anything......

RE: V240 ALOM password recovery ???

any other solution?

RE: V240 ALOM password recovery ???

Sounds like you did everything right.  Someone else can verify, it is starting to smell like a hardware issue.
