I ran into an odd situation on a RS/6000 runing AIX 4.3 and here
is the detail:
1. log in under root
2. issue the command passwd
3. type in new password
4. type in new password again
5. log off the system
When I tried to log back to the system, it won't take the new
root password. I have changed root passsword before several
times. This is the first time I ran into a problem.
The only thing I can think about is that I may accidently typed
in one extra character the first time. However, if this is true
then the password won't be changed because the verification
would fail (the second time I type in the new password).
what could be wrong?
by the way, if I cannot get back the root password, is there
anything I can do besides restore the system?
thanks in advance for your help.
