Hi, i have a similar problem, i forgot my root password and the server its in a remote colocation site, is there a way to recover the encrypted password and crackit some way, i have my normal account (which is in wheel group), i even know that the root's pass begings with MAG_"something", but i really cant remember the complete root's pass, rebooting in single user mode is my best bet?
If you are in wheel, then you should be able to "sudo su" to switch to the root account and then "passwd root" to reset the password. -- -- Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard. --Atom Powers-- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
