Hi,

Have a look at the diagrams on the side cover (On a Tower Model) or the top cover (On a Rack Model). Here you will see that switch 5 on the maintenence switch disables the system password feature.

Hello,

Switch 6 resets the NVR but switch 5 controls the system password. Basically if this is a tower system all the switches should be off. If its a rack system, only switch 3 should be on.

Can you check this again please.

Hello Leong Kin Mun,
If despite leaving Switch 5 to the On position you are prompted for the password then I suspect a bad Pheripheral Board. First of all try reseating it and see if that helps. If not then clear NVRAM and that should reset the hardware configuration. If all fails then log in a call to have the peripheral board replaced. Your server is under warranty anyways.

Regards,
