HP c7000 OA password

I installed a c7000 enclosure at a remote datacenter and being used to regular iLO thought i could configure the IP, User/Password from the KVM. I am now not anywhere near the c7000. I have the IP set,but is there some way to set the user/password remotely? Is there a standard used for the passwords that I could figure out? (ie. Mac address of the OA)

thanks for any help.

I don't know of any way to remotely reset the password without logging in to the Onboard Administrator. And if there where that would be a serious security issue.

Your best bet if the OA has it's default password is to get a hold of the note that usualy come with the OA's or have someone take out the OA card and read the default password from the sticker on the bottom.
