Recover Password for 2700 Loc Server


When you lost your password of the 2700 loc server and it’s not the default root/password, then you must recover the password.
Boot the machine and during hit any key when you see the messag e:
loc_boot

Hit the any-key (Don’t ask me where it’s on the keyboard)
You will see somthing like :
loc_boot_menu
And press ‘e’

Choose the kernel file and press ‘e’ again.
Add a space and ‘1’ at the end of the line.
loc_edit_kernel
Press enter and hit the ‘b’.

After the bootsequence, you’ll see the prompt and you can change the password by typing the command
passwd.
It’s possible you’ll get a warning, but this is for lab purpose, so who cares.
loc_passwd

And now you can reboot the machine and use root/new password to login.
