We have a 9407 M15 without a HMC. On the odd occasion we have required it we have used a remote LAN console setup on a pc. However I have either forgotten the special Access id or it has expired and I am unable to connect the console pgm. To compound the issue I am unable to logon on to SST as the password has also either expired or been changed without recording the password somewhere. I reset the qsecofr sst id using chgdstpwd *default but when I try and log on with this I get into a catch22 where it says the password has expired but when I try and change it I get an error that I am not authorised to change the password!! The IBM techs are confounded but hopefully a software guy will respond to the job logged and be able to assist. In the meantime does anyone here have any suggestions to resolve this impasse.
