Sun ALOM password recovery
To overide the ALOM password on the system you will need to:
Attach console to SC “SERIAL MGT” port
Power on the server via the front power button. Once POST has completed, you will need to wait 1 to 2 minutes for a timeout to occur and the system to drop to the “ok>” prompt.
If you do not get the “Please login:” prompt (you will likely see the SC prompt) then you must power the system off remove the battery from the LOM board, wait a minute, and re-install everything).
Below is an example of what you might see on the console:
SC Alert: Host System has Reset
[wait one two minutes]
Serial line login timeout, returns to console stream.
Boot the system single usermode with the Solaris DVD:
ok> boot cdrom -s
Use the scadm command to reset the admin password:
cd /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin
./scadm userpassword admin
Use the escape sequence “#.” to get system back to the alom login prompt.
You can now log into the admin account using the password from step 4).
