Second hand Proliant DL145 G2 Lights-out password recovery

Hi,

I've just got a second hand Proliant DL145 G2 server. I was eager to try out the Lights-out possibilities, but then I found out the other owner has changed the standard password.

Is there any way I can reset this password? I can't find any usefull information on the internet myself. I've tried installing hponcfg on my CentOs 5.1 installation, but this wouldn't work, so I prefer if it is possible with a jumper or something.

Anyone who can help me out?

There should be a reset on the mother board that will reset it back to the original password listed on cover.

Where is the reset button on the motherboard ?

I've actually never managed to get it to work.
So if you manage, please post it here.
