recover root passwd in hpux
hi everyone,
can anyone help me to recover root password in hpunix???
thanks in advance.

Well, you can't "recover" it, but you should be able to change it. Linux has a "single-user" mode - does HP-UX have something similar? If so, boot single-user then change the password with 'passwd'.
