Hi all

I have a HP Proliant DL360 G6 server running SBS 2008.

I need to change the boot order within the BIOS, but everythime I enter the BIOS I am prompted for a password.  I set the server up and dont remember it whatsoever.  I have tried everyone that  can think of but to no avail.

Any ideas how I can reset this info without losing information within the Operating System?

Cheers

you actually have to crack open the case and set a jumper to clear the password.

Cannot seem to find it on my motherboard, the picture looks a lot different to mine, mine being the G6 server may have a bearing??

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Use this link to reference the system maintenence switch (scroll untio you see the motherboard layout picture and its number 2)

then use this link for the cmos reset option

if that doesn't work, try pulling the battery (usually a silver disc about the size of a quarter) while the machine is unplugged from the wall.
