Hi Hicham,



The username will be reset during this process :)


Recovering the OS Administrator Password


If you lose the Administrator password and cannot access the system, use the following procedure to reset the Administrator password.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Note During this procedure, you will be required to remove and then insert a valid CD or DVD in the disk drive to prove that you have physical access to the system.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Procedure



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Step 1 Log in to the system with the following username and password:


•Username: pwrecovery


•Password: pwreset


The Welcome to admin password reset window displays.


Step 2 Press any key to continue.


Step 3 If you have a CD or DVD in the disk drive, remove it now.


Step 4 Press any key to continue.


The system tests to ensure that you have removed the CD or DVD from the disk drive.


Step 5 Insert a valid CD or DVD into the disk drive.


The system tests to ensure that you have inserted the disk.


Step 6 After the system verifies that you have inserted the disk, you get prompted to enter a new Administrator password.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Note The system resets the Administrator username to admin. If you want to set up a different Administrator username and password, use the CLI command set password. For more information, see Appendix A, "Command Line Interface."



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Step 7 Reenter the new password.


The system checks the new password for strength. If the password does not contain enough different characters, you get prompted to enter a new password.


Step 8 After the system verifies the strength of the new password, the password gets reset, and you get prompted to press any key to exit the password reset utility.
