Does anyone know how to reset the bios password for a DL580?

Hi,

you can do this when you clear NVRAM from the system maintenance switch on the system board.

When you open the server on the access panel should be a picture of the switch, location and 6 or 8 positions....normally you must set position 6 to on.

Re: DL 580 Bios Password Recovery

Thanks for the quick response. We ended up unplugging the server and removing the battery from the bios. Since we were rebuilding the server, losing all of the bios settings was acceptable.
