Recover lost hscroot password for an IBM HMC or any unencrypted boot drive
removed hard drive from HMC and used a sata usb adapter to connect it to an Ubuntu virtual machine
mounted /dev/sdb2 to /mnt/sdb2 and /dev/sdb3 /mnt/sdb2/var
chroot /mnt/sdb2
/usr/bin/passwd hscroot
replaced hard drive into hmc and booted - now able to logon with my new password!
