Admin can no longer login

Hi,

I hope this is the right forum.

One of my servers Admin can't login any more. Because of this Messenger
won't start. I can't login to a workstation with the admin account. All
other accounts are working fine. I can't get into iManager, Remote
Manager or ConsoleOne.

I can get into root's account.

How do I reset Admin's password? You better believe I'm creating a
second admin account after this.

cat /etc/SuSE-release
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86_64)
VERSION = 10
PATCHLEVEL = 3

cat /etc/novell-release
Novell Open Enterprise Server 2.0.3 (x86_64)
VERSION = 2.0.3
PATCHLEVEL = 3
BUILD

Thanks
Bob Crandell

If you have an account that has W to the ACL (or rights to the password
management pseudo-attribute) for the Admin account, then you would use
that account to change the password.

If you have a NetWare server in the replica ring, you might try changing
the bindery context to where the admin account is and find a copy of
setpass.nlm to change the password.

Otherwise, you'll probably need to open an SR to get it resolved.

I didn't remember setting up another account with admin rights - but I
did.
