You are certain that you are using the correct usr/pwd combo?

Here is what I would try on the chance that somebody has run passwd from 
the CLI:

1) Log into GUI as admin and go to Personal Profile, Account and set a 
new password.

2) Log into CLI as admin using the password you jus set from the GUI. 
That should let you in.

3) See if you can su - to root now using the same password.

That ought to work.   If it doesn't, I suppose you could always reboot 
the box into single user mode and reset the password that way.  If the 
box is in a remote datacenter you can have the datacenter staff help you 
with it or if they're like us, they can provide you with an IP-KVM so 
that you can reboot the box and watch it go through POST and GRUB so you 
can have virtual console access to it.

HTH,
