Forgot root passwd
« on: November 17, 2012, 06:24:51 am »

Hello,
 Being away from my box has interfered with my ability to recall my root passwd.
Any hope to reset it ?
I am using Vlocity.

boot into another install or a livecd or install cd then chroot into your vlocity install and change the passwd.
