Using passwords

Use this information to set, change, or delete a power-on password.

From the System Security choice, you can set, change, and delete a power-on password.

If you set a power-on password, you must type the power-on password to complete the system startup and to have access to the Configuration/Setup Utility menu.

You can use any combination of up to seven characters (A - Z, a - z, and 0 - 9) for the password. Keep a record of your password in a secure place.

If you forget the power-on password, you can regain access to the blade server either by removing the blade server battery and then reinstalling it or by using the power-on password override switch (see Removing the battery and Installing the battery).
