Description

If using the /etc/netcli console utility, option #7 does not work for resetting the root password.

If you choose this option, it advises that the password changed successfully but the new password can not be used via ssh or another TTY console session.

If the user forgets their root password, the only way out of this scenario is to boot into single user mode and jump through hoops.
