Missing cover key HP Netserver E45 - where can I find a new one?

An HP Netserver E45 has been donated as a training box by a downsizing firm; while we are greatful for the donation - it was supplied with the cover lock "locked" and no key to be found. As this will materially affect our ability to make any upgrades/reconfigurations possible - is there any source for a replacement key to unlock the cover? Or do we need to secure the services of a locksmith?

David,

The key is a standard PC lock. I have several HP servers and all the keys work on all the servers. I would call the firm that gave you the server and ask the System Administrator if he has any key for an HP NetServer. He may have one lying around. You may even be able to buy one at a computer, electronics part stores or a key/locksmith shop. If all else fails, call HP and ask them to send you a key.

Good Luck - let me know if you make progress.
