Thanks, Sunil for the steps, but I have tried that already.
When I get to the # prompt in single user mode, I cannot use
the passwd command. I get the error;;
passwd: error opening database: /etc/pwd.db: Permission denied
passwd: /etc/master.passwd: unchanged
and permissions are as follows;
# ls -tld /etc
drwxr-xr-x 17 root wheel 2560 Aug 28 09:16 /etc
# ls -tld /etc/pwd.db
drw---r-- 1 root wheeel 40960 Aug 28 09:12 /etc/pwd.db
I -can- execute vipw and change passwords. It updates all the files
master.passwd, spwd.db, passwd, and pwd.db without error.
