Linux Proliant boot disk/CD
Posted on 2006-11-28
I have a HP Proliant DL360 running Linux that I just inherited and no one knows the root or any other user name/password, so I need to boot to a Linux disk/CD and clear the root users /etc/shadow hash.
I have no problem finding a bootable Linux CD/Floppy but I can't find the find the right combo of a Linux distro AND the necessary drivers that will let me see the local SCSI array.
It looks like I'll be messing around with this for a few days as I search, download and try one live distro after the other and try to shoehorn in extra drivers.
To save time, does anyone know of a general purpose boot CD for that will allow this with a Proliant ?
