Hmmm Replying to ones own message, grrr
I can't seem to change the system password, here is what I am doing point
out anything wrong...

I am flolowing the directions from:
(the section MGMT5)

at the >>> prompt I have entered b/1 this gets me to the SYSBOOT> prompt
all good so far.

then I type the followning commands:

this gets me to the $ prompt then I type

And from the VMS faq this leads me to believe that it sould boot up and
leave me logged in to the console. and then I could change the password.

this doesn't seem to occur, it seems to boot up normaly, and then ask for

Is there anything I am doing wrong? I am using VMS 6.1 if thats a help

THanks heaps
