rahul,

i mean in my preview Post, do you want to use the same password from admin for root ?

example:

the current admin account password is = brocade

do you want to use this password = "brocade" for root account ?

I just want to change default password of root (i.e., passwd)

It can be anything with combination on Capital letter and Number.
