I beg to differ with HP's recommendation (in their doc set) for Devin'ssituation.
HP's description is meant for customer sites to have a copyof usernames/passwords to
which they can revert for nasty situationssuch as a corrupted SYSUAF.DAT. *If* this
system has the 'alternate'file, it should have the same problem as the original,
of unknownpasswords. What Devin needs is instructions to break into the system.
I happen to know how to do that (used to work in OpenVMS Engineering).Is that something
that should be discussed here?
