please excuse me here, I am new to this forum and new to solaris.
I recently aquired a sun computer running solaris 8, I have a shell account, but have no root access. How can I recover or reset the root password. The computer in question has no local CDROM device, I can only console into the computer.
is there a way to mount a CDROM from a different network drive and make it boot the system to do a recovery? or is there a script i can run local on the box that will break the root password?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
