1. Stop all I/O going to the T3(s).

2. Connect a console cable from the master unit to a video terminal and power off all units (both trays in a partner group).

3. Power up the master unit (leave alternate master off) and interrupt the boot process by hitting RETURN when you see the following message:

"hit the RETURN key within X seconds to cancel..."

NOTE: If you leave the alternate master on, the T3 Operating System (OS) will continue to boot. Eventually, the OS will assume there is a problem with the master (that we interrupted), disable it, and make itself the master.

4. At the "T300-EP" prompt, use the 'set passwd' command to view (and memorize...) the password.

5. Type 'reset' to reboot, and immediately power on the alternate master (if present).

6. If you choose, you can change the password after it boots with the 'passwd' command.
