Resetting ALOM

Hi gurus,
I have a sun netra 240 server. I want to get to the ALOM but it always ask for login and password. Can anyone tell me how I can reset the ALOM it to default so I can be able to configure it?

Thanks lots.

Use the 'scadm' command (buried down in /usr/platform/$(uname -i)/sbin) to manipulate the ALOM configuration settings.

Start with 'scadm help' for an overview of available commands, and 'scadm show' for a view of configurable settings. You'll probably start with 'usershow' and 'userpassword' to make login possible, and judicious use of 'scadm set <keyword> <value>' to configure the ALOM for your network.

Yes, that's right.

If your system can boot Solaris then you can get at commands (from Solaris) that can blow your ALOM password away and/or change it.

From memory the default ALOM login is admin/changeme

Try that first.
