    Try booting with a system disk and use the dumb obvious tries:
    "admin", "aministrator", etc. where id and psw are the same.

    UNIX doesn't have the concept of "administrator rights", but does have
    the concepts of "super user" (root) and "single-user boot". A
    single-user boot per definition gives you super user access.

    To perform a single-user boot:

    - Boot the system and when its says you can press ESC, do so.
    - You get the firmware boot menu. Do "b p0 isl".
    - You should get a "ISL> " prompt. If so, type "hpux -is".
    - You should get a "# " root prompt.

    If the "hpux -is" fails, then let the system boot normally and note
    the string such as for example "Booting disk(scsi.6;0x0)/hp-ux" (or
    ".../stand/vmunix"). Now boot again to the "ISL> " prompt, and add the
    part after "Booting" to the "ISL> hpux -is" command, i.e. for example
    "ISL> hpux -is disk(scsi.6;0x0)/hp-ux".
