Hi,

I have C7000 Blade Enclosure, and I forget its password for On Board Administrator. There is no tag attached to it.

Can any body help me to set the password for OA.

Thanks,

Re: Password for On Board Administrator

The Onboard Administrator password recovery procedure is clearly explained in the OA User's Guide.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00705292/c00705292.pdf

The procedure is listed on pages 19 and 20.

Farooq:
If the toetags are missing the procedure to recover the passwords is:
1. Connect a computer to the serial port of the Active Onboard Administrator using a null-modem cable.
2. Open HyperTerminal (in Microsoft Windows) or a suitable terminal window (in Linux) and connect to the Active Onboard Administrator.
3. Press and hold in the Onboard Administrator reset button for 5 seconds.
4. Select LP from the serial console prompt.
5. Press L to boot the system into Lost Password mode. The password appears on the screen as it reboots.

Hope it was helpful.!

SOLUTION:
In the event that the administrator password has been lost, misplaced, or forgotten, the following procedure allows for resetting the administrator password to the factory default that shipped on the tag with the Onboard Administrator module.

The Onboard Administrator resets a lost password to Lost Password/Flash Disaster Recovery (LP/FDR) mode.

To recover the password and reset the administrator password to the factory default:

Connect a computer to the serial port of the Active Onboard Administrator using a null-modem cable.

Open HyperTerminal (in Microsoft Windows) or a suitable terminal window (in Linux) and connect to the Active Onboard Administrator .

Press and hold in the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator reset button for 5 seconds.

Select LP from the serial console prompt.

Press L to boot the system into Lost Password mode. The password appears on the screen as it reboots.

The information was derived from the HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator User Guide .
