Can someone please help me on how to reset/clear the bios password for an ML350 G4p Tower Server?

Thanks very much!

Use the System maintenance switch S5. It should help. More information in ML350 G4p Maintenance and Service Guide on page 45:

Thanks, Marek! You have pointed me to the right direction - the maintenance switch & the manual! ;)

Resetting System Password: As Marek had said... open the hood of your server and look for the "System Maintenance Switch".

I have a HP Proliant ML350 G4p 3.2GHz Xeon -
- Shutdown your server
- flick the "S6" switch to the ON position
- Restart your server
- Follow screen instructions
- and wait for the system to prompt you to turn the switch back to the DEFAULT position & restart again!

Warning: Resetting your bios configuration can cause loss of data! So, be sure to configure your bios properly!
