Rebooted one of our netapps yesterday and was checking that the seial connection worked just in case there were any issues.
I used a laptop with putty attached using the netapp serial connector cable.
I found that it would not accept the root password, if I connected via ssh it would.
Is there something i'm missing here or could the root password be different for the serial connection?

In general the root password is the same (either over Serial, Telnet, SSH etc)...
One possibility could be that there was a different keyboard layout or terminal emulation setting in putty when you connected over the serial connection.
