Re: storage works 1/8 g2 lost admin password

IIRC hp support can give you a temporary password in order to reset the admin password. Ask them!

Another option (from manual):

Restoring factory defaults
Use the Conï¬ guration: Restore defaults page to restore the conï¬ guration to the factory defaults or to reset
the administrator password to null. The device will perform an inventory after the defaults are restored.

Once you reset the administrator password to null, you will not be able to access the administrator
functions in the RMI until you set an administrator password through the OCP . To change the
administrator password, use "Conï¬ guration: Password page" on page 54.

Hope this helps!
