Lenovo TS130 :: Redhat 5.1.19.6 Nash :: XenServer 5.5.0 :: Root password <Unknown>

Back Story..
I have a modified Lenovo TS130 server that used to be part of the now discontinued Intel Hybrid Cloud program. After a cold restart, the server turned on, but I can't load the VM without inputting a root password. I don't remember setting a root password ever. So I'm left with resetting the password.

http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX116019 Article says that I should type  menu.c32 at the boot: prompt to begin resetting the password but when I type men.c32 I get a cannot find kernel image: menu.c32.

any ideas on getting menu.c32 to run?

boot: Menu.c32

This is the set of options to help with the above error.  If you can connect to the server using XenCenter or SSH you should be able to start the VM without needing to enter a password.
 
From SSH or XenCenter Console:
·         xe vm-list (to get the UUID of the vm)

·         xe vm-start uuid=VMUUID gained from above

 
If for some reason the VM is requiring a password to start, you’ll need to either SSH to the XenServer or use the Console in XenCenter to try the command sequence below.
 
xe vm-param-clear uuid=VMUUID param-name=blocked-operations ; xe vm-start uuid=VMUUID

Ahh good point.. Intel gave me their DEFAULT (backdoor) PASSWORD for the box. there was no need to reset the PW. With pw security concerns of others still running this box Hybrid Cloud box from INTEL I opted not to post the password.

@Sandy what do you think.. the Hybrid Program is closed.. I'm on the fence.. Post it or not?

Hybrid cloud is Closed.. EOL

intel1234 - that's the password.  - If you have a Lenovo Box that you pulled off the HC program, and kept the hardware. Intel gave you a few scripts to run to make this box a stand alone VM.  If you ever restart the physical machine you'll need a password that was never told to me and if you're reading this prob. not told to you, to start the VM.

I'm publishing the PW because INTEL support couldn't help me either. I was told Program Closed. HC team reassigned. and that it could take weeks to track this information down.

I email'd a few guy's around Intel from past support cases who knew the PW.
