If you have 22222222 access you could SEE which disk is the
loadsource, just go to the rackconfig and it will be marked with *
From there, take the serial number and just take each disk.
To aid in your hacking, stop all parity protection (one less abstraction layer).
And good luck i doubt the users/pass are stored in plaintext.
You could also dump an op21 and look at the lic code part...

Keep us posted, i'm curious about this.

best regards,

Well I can tell you it's the top cage, left disk unit, ALMOST certainly.
It's possible that it's the 2nd disk from the left.

Now on this quest to find the DST Password with a disk editor...... Yeah
good luck with that.

I believe they are encrypted, and worse in EBCDIC so noodling for
recognizable stuff will be hard.

Why don't you run CHGDSTPWD and reset the QSECOFR DST profile that way?

I have this old 9406-720. It has five drives in the cage on the top left
side (below the control panel), and two in the cage below it. How do I find
out which is the load source? I can only access DST with the '22222222'
user ID. I need to find the load source device so I can poke into it with a
disk editor and hopefully find where the DST passwords are stored.
