What is the default root password for OSx?
I have a problem, I need to install a program call zimbra and the software ask me to login as root.
I can't remember that I have enter or change password for this super user root account.
Anyone can point me to the right direction?

By default ROOT is not activated. You must go to your utilities folder and go to net info manager and activate the ROOT account.
Once in net info manager go to:
4. Enable Root User
5. Follow prompts
Good luck, though playing with root is risky and make sure you are 100% sure this is required.

As long as we're talking root access, here's another question. I normally use a Standard User account, probably because I'm still a little bit skittish - I'm a recent switcher - and I noticed something strange. If I'm in my Standard User account and have to use the terminal and use the 'sudo' command, i get a prompt for a password. When I enter the Administrator account password, the prompt indicates that I entered the wrong password. When I log into the Administrator account, however, I can use the 'sudo' command with no problems. Why is that?
