I don't know if this helps but from sc> you can do: start SP/console. Answer "yes" to the question and it will take you to the console. You may have to press Enter.

But maybe I don't understand your question exactly.

on the assumption that you are able to see output on the screen and enter commands and that you mounted the hard drive on /a, just use sed to edit the /etc/shadow ... make sure you reset the permissions to the file correctly ...
Code:
# ls -l /a/etc/shadow
-r-------- 1 root sys 412 Jul 14 00:04 /a/etc/shadow
# cp -p /a/etc/shadow /a/etc/shadow.tmp
# grep root /a/etc/shadow
root:htWkjhljh.oiuWq2$aQ/56n:1500::::::
# sed "s/root:[0-9a-zA-Z\*\$.\/]*:/root::/" /a/etc/shadow > /tmp/test
# cat /tmp/test
root::1500::::::
....
....
# cat /tmp/test > /a/etc/shadow
# cat /a/etc/shadow
# ls -l /a/etc/shadow

after everything is set, reboot the box and reset the root password ... run rm /etc/shadow.tmp once satisfied that there are no more password-related issues ...

Do you mean the secure console for the ILOM or ALOM? The dealt password is usually changeme if it was not changed.

I'm not sure that I understand your question, but,

Normally, on the serial management port connection, you can use
Code:
#.

to toggle from the O/S serial interface back to the system controller (SC> prompt). From the SC> prompt you can toggle back to the O/S serial console with the command
Code:
console

Is it the root password for the O/S or the root password for the ILOM that you don't have?

You can clear the O/S password by editing /etc/shadow after booting from cd.
You can change the ILOM password with a O/S command.

Please provide more information.

Also, do you know why the system is going into system maintenance mode??
