Do you think that there is a Solaris OS installed on this machine?

Do you have the Solaris DVD media?

That Login prompt certainly looks like an ALOM prompt to me.

I am not sure if an OS is installed or not but I do have the media. Is it possible to boot the disc without accessing the ALOM ? It is possible to remove this passwd if I am capable of doing that.

See this:

C H A P T E R 3 - Configuring ALOM

Seems like the default password on a V215 (after resetting the ALOM) is based on the chassis serial number.

Does taking out the battery and waiting for some time (results in time/date reset) resets the ALOM ? I tried chassis serial (Sys S/N) doesn't work either.

No, that won't reset ALOM.

Try removing both power chords for a few minutes and then hitting 'esc' as ALOM is booting.

Yes, but do the default login credentials now work?
