Re: Bypass mount/system request at boot time?

I have a remote client that has somehow gotten himself into a mess,
and I'm not sure how to get them out of it remotely.
They hired a consultant to come in an "work on the network." This -
ah - "brilliant person" apparently convinced them he just had to
reboot the 2660.
He booted the 2660 system with a Linux DVD and somehow or another,
managed to format the second drive (used for data storage) with
Linux. How is beyond me...
Anyway, I'm a good 500 miles away from this server physically, and
there is a mount/system command in the systartup_vms.com file to mount
this noe Linux formatted disk. Which obviously won't mount.
The system boot stalls at this mount request. I think I might be able
to put an /ASSIST qualifier in there and cancel the mount, but I have
to get past the mount request to do that. :)
Is there any easy way around this? Will just pulling the drive enable
it to bypass?
I'm overnighting a freshly formatted drive that will mount, but if I
can get this production box
up tonight, it would be a nice thing.
Sneaky tricks invited. :)
Short of concealing a poisoned needle in the power button, there isn't a heck of a lot you can do.
I would write a letter to each of your people who were involved. The letter would threaten instant termination for tampering in any way with your server or permitting others to do so.
You will still probably have to fire a couple of people before the message sinks in!
