Disable / Re-Enable F10 on Proliant 1600 (E34)

I have managed finally to solve every problem but this one.

Does anyone know how I can disable the F10 (System Setup) at startup and if it is possible to re-enable it if I need to.

Why would you want to do that ?

Because the server is in an unsecure area and people have changed system settings on other machines before now.... If I disable the F10 process, I can stop them from doing this and then only re-enable it if I want to change something myself.

George unfortunately there is no function to do that, however you might be able to set IM to send you Critical Updates or Pager if some one accessed or restart box.

Thanks for you answer...I'm not sure if I explained myself properly:-

When the system boots-up I get the 'F10 Setup' message. I want to be able to disable that message, But before I could do that I would need to make sure that I could get it back at a later date if the need arises... I am aware that there is a way if turning the message off but I'm not sure how to do it and don't know if I could turn it on again if needed.

Normally F10 always show up at POST, there was some instances where F10 disappears, however it was measured as non-standard. System Partition itself don't have feature to set Password. Only one-way is: if you can mage trough Fdisk and someway mage boot sector to keep partition as inactive and denying access to it after pressing F10.

Thanks, that means that what I am looking for doesn't exist, which is the answer I was looking for..

I drastically need to find some learning material for this server and then how to set it up with backoffice 4.5

Thanks for your patients with my lack of server knowledge... :)
