I am tasked with converting an old QNX 2.21 system to a VM running n modern hardware.
A search has turned up a P75 which was allegedly supplied as a spare for the existing 486 some years back.
Writing on the case suggests this may have a copy of both the OS and the actual program we need which would avoid disturbing the running 486. Which is running some vital bits of process machinery. I am very reluctant to interfere with this machine in any way as it is a single point of failure and would not like to bet on it rebooting correctly if it is ever shut down.
The P75 boots up OK but goes straight into another control program which is irrelevant to our needs at this time.
ctrl+alt+5 takes me to a login screen but if any login credentials were supplied, they have been lost a long time ago. It MAY be possible to contact the outfit that supplied the spare P75 but to possibly shortcut that…
Was there a default login/pwd combo for QNX2.21/3.21?
root/root admin/admin and root/password dont work - probably a good thing in almost every instance except this one.
Neither do various other semi-probable login/pwd combos.
How can I get root on a QNX 2.21 box?
Any advice welcome - Thanks
