need to access root account, not sroot on Avaya Linux

I need to access root account, not sroot, on Avaya Linux
First, I have a question.
With sroot account, Can I do everything in Avaya Linux such as root?
Does sroot have a root privilege?
Actually, I didn't install something with sroot account.
I think I need a root account.

I tried to login as root account with this command.

[sroot@vpms] su - root
and then

I expected ---> [root@vpms]
but it was not.

How to get it? what should I do?
Thanks all.

Usually the sroot account has all root privileges. You can check this with the command "id"
For root privileges this should print out "uid=0(root)...".

odorn is correct. I'm not sure with avaya linux but in unix solaris, you can check a file wherein you can check if the group or userid is the same as root, then privilege is the same as root, if not then not. im not sure if sroot is sudo root too.

you will know if you are on root login if you see "hostname #" or # but if you see "$" it is only a user under unix. su - u root is correct, when it ask for password just press enter or of course enter the root passwd if you have.
