HELP! Corrupted /etc/passwd file on Solaris x86

Post by Norm You » Sat, 25 Dec 1993 03:15:02



Yes I have a corrupted passwd file, specifically the root entry.  I can
still log on but not as root nor can I su to root because it cannot
find the specified shell.

Short of re-installing the O/S, is there any way to replace the corrupted
file so that I can regain access as root?

Any help _much_ appreciated.
