Need to reset your rsc password from the OS?
Don’t know what the user name is?
# /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm usershow username permissions password -------- ----------- -------- admin cuar Assigned
To reset the password:
# /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm userpassword root
# /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm help USAGE: rscadm

I always find myself needing this command. It is very handy if your OS is up but your rsc is not responding. Now if your OS is down .. this will not help much.
This is an example of a non-responding rsc:
# telnet myrsc Trying my.ip.to.my.rsc ... Connected to myrsc Escape character is '^]'. Connection closed by foreign host.
Check network config:
# /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm shownetwork IP Address: Gateway address: Netmask: Ethernet address:
# /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm resetrsc -s Are you sure you want to reboot RSC (y/n)? y
After doing a soft reset you should get a login prompt if not you can try a hard reset.
# /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm resetrsc Are you sure you want to reboot RSC (y/n)? y
The rscadm command has many other options. You can even reset the rsc password with it.
# /usr/platform/`uname -i`/rsc/rscadm resetrsc -s bash: /usr/platform/SUNW,Sun-Fire-V245/rsc/rscadm: No such file or directory
Well you may not have an rsc but an ALOM .. try
/usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/scadm resetrsc -s
