Lost root pw on Irix Origin 200


I have a major problem.
In our development business, we haven't had requests for Irix based versions for a looong time. We hav now, for a Origin 3900.
The guy who setup our two Origin 200 master/slave's aren't employed anylonger, and that was long before my time.
The netcard fails, so no way of contacting the server that way.
I've hooked up a serial console, but no one knows the root password.
It's Irix 6.5.23 IP27.

Any ways of resetting roots passwd? From the console, I tried single mode, which of cause require... dada, root passwd

See sections 3.7 and 3.8 of this Irix admin guide. I've never actually tried this though.

Thanks. Yes, I too was thinking of mounting the drive on another *nix, just hoped for some other way. Well, sometimes life could be easier... at least Unix makes things possible.
