I'm since a few years a Linux Admin and I know that I can change the password of root when I reboot the system with a live system and mount the / or /etc (depends on the directory distribution). I have now a bigger problem.
I think there went something wrong when I used VI and the first line of /etc/passwd have changed the first letter in to a capital letter. So now there is Root instead of root. Is there any way to change this as an normal User?
It is running on an Cisco Server and I could even acces the system trough iLO and the KVM Switch. So there would be ways to get on the system. But it is a 24/7 System so I can't shutdown the Server.
I would appriciate any kind of help you can give me. Thank you.
