Forget the Power on Password Security

I have an old Proliant 6000 server and had forgot the password for Power on Security. How would I get back on to the computer. I don't even know the location for the power supply for the CMOS and the jumpers. Many thank in advance for the help.

Re: Forget the Power on Password Security

Shalom Kevin,

You wanted this to be a hard one right?

On some systems there is no bypass permitting you to clear the power on security.

Your best bet is to look up the system in http://docs.hp.com

There are detailed schematics on most systems and you might find this system in there.

BTW I found that link through docs.hp.com
