Question about Cyclades TS 1000 Terminal Server
Well, you don't even have to go to that extreme to recover your root password. Connect to the console port of the TS to your laptop or workstation. Type reboot (as root) and hit Enter. As you watch the boot sequence, pay close attention as you'll need to input characters. Specifically, when you see "Linux PPC Load", press the space bar a couple of times and type out the word single and hit Enter. If you did it in time, you should see a hash (#) prompt without requesting a password. From here, type the command passwd and hit Enter. Choose your password and confirm it. Don't forget to perform a signal_ras hup followed by saveconf to ensure your changes are activated immediately and are saved to flash memory (non-volatile state). From here type reboot again and you should be back in business.
