BL490c G7 BIOS password issue

Checking to see if anybody has had or knows of an issue setting the BIOS password on BL490c G7 blades.

I can initially set the BIOS password but when I save and reboot blade and try to enter BIOS, the password comes up as not known.  Defo not a typo, tried on a couple of blades and it produces the same results.

ROM version is I28 05/05/2011

Seems like a bios issue itself . Have the board replaced and let me know the outcome. Really wierd if it is happening on multiple blades, I have not heard any known issues on the server.

Issue resolved......BIOS passwords cannot be bigger than 7 characters (num/letters.  Anything above this gets chopped off.

Unable to find this mentioned in the documentation
