1. Download the latest IBM Advanced setup utility (ASU) 64 bit rpm from the following link

https://support.podc.sl.edst.ibm.com/support/home/docdisplay?lndocid=TOOL-ASU

I have already downloaded the latest utility and placed in the following location /appl/images/imm. Please compare the utility version, if versions differ from the link and copied one then download the latest utility from the given link
2. Copy the rpm to the server where IMM password has to be reset.

# scp ibm_utl_asu_asut86d-9.63_linux_x86-64.rpm 207.130.89.66:/tmp/
root@207.130.109.96's password: 
ibm_utl_asu_asut86d-9.63_linux_x86-64.rpm                                                                                                                          100% 8200KB 911.1KB/s   00:09
