You can try this using EmergencyId mode. Stop IRIS and start with the parameter:


iris start IRIS EmergencyId=user,password


iris start IRIS /EmergencyId=user,password

User and password can be anything. This will be used for login.

Once logged in as this user by the terminal, you can use the ^SECURITY routine in the %SYS namespace to change the password of _SYSTEM.

EmergencyId Mode


Thanks Lucas Fernandes
Getting below error while running "iris start IRIS EmergencyId=user,password" command:

(29) unable to open registry key

You have to include a slash before EmergencyId :

iris start iris /EmergencyId=userA,pwB

Also, make sure that 'iris' is indeed your instance name (use 'iris all' to show all instances)

You have to include a slash before EmergencyId :

It depends on OS. In Linux there's no slash. Windows is with slash.

Now getting below error after specifying right instance name:

Startup failed:  (22) Instance properties definition file does not exist or is inaccessable:   EmergencyID=user,password Configuration IRISHealth. 

Can you show the output of 'iris all' ?

Which is your OS ?

Please find output and exact command. OS = Windows 10

Can you try again with the slash (since it is windows, you have to use the slash) :
iris start irishealth /EmergencyId=user,password

As @Danny Wijnschenk said, on Windows it needs to be /EmergencyId=.

There are a few more instructions in the Documentation,  like "Start a command prompt, running it as an administrator", etc.


How can I disable the recovery function ?  Also I should add that I need to restore it also, can I rename that routine to something else ?

What do you mean? Why do you want to disable it and rename?
