DL380 BIOS Password


Hoping someone can help.

I have a new DL350 G5 server.

I set a power on password for it, and confirmed it. But when I reboot and it asks for the password, it will not accept what I inputted.

I've tried variations in case I happened to type the password inccoretly twice when setting it up.

Is there a way to clear the BIOS? Ive done it before with desktop pc's, but am unsure with a server.

Thanks in advance.

Most ProLiant's have a jumper that can be set to clear NVRAM and the BIOS password with it. Check the case cover sticker for the jumper location.
