Title: How to recover a lost root password?
Post by: Thomas on August 23, 2010, 09:01:37 am
I know there was a NeXTanswer about that topic. I think it was this one:
2152 - Restoring Root Password  97-06-17

I looked but couldn't find it here in the archive. Does anybody have a copy of this NeXTanswer or know how to reset the root password?

Reviving this thread for a simple thank you note.

Pulled my NeXTcube out of storage after about a dozen years and couldn't remember my password. This came in handy :-)
