Bios passwords

I have several DL308G5s Dual core that I can not login into the bios after setting the password. I can reset the cmos and everything is ok, but when I set the admin password for the bios, reboot and try to login I get invalid password. A single core system wit bios from may works fine. All the dual cores with Oct and Aug firmware do not work.

Re: Bios passwords

hi

remember this

"The Set Admin Password option is a simple character string with a maximum of seven characters."

so if you use more that 7 caracter you're going to get a message like invalid password

check that and let us know

Why your server HP can recognize only first 7 characters?
