    Dear Sandor,

    there is next info in redbook:

    "Note: If you forget your password, contact IBM Technical Support. Password reset is
    possible with direct DS3000 Storage Subsystem HW unit attachment only."

    IBM System Storage DS3000: Introduction and Implementation Guide
    http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg247065.html

    BTW, there is additional info:

    "For security reasons, you can attempt to enter a password ten times before the DS3000
    storage subsystem enters a “lockout” state. Before you can try to enter a password again,
    you must wait ten minutes for the “lockout” state to be reset."

    Hello Alex..

    In hungarian Alexander=Sandor.. :)
    Yes I know the IBM support know the password reset process , but I'm a storage engineer and I would like reset the password without IBM TS.
    I belive if I log in to the SP with CLI (serial) console I can reset the password. ( This process works with EMC,NetApp,FSC storage).
    On monday I try to reset the SP password.

    Thanks for your help
