BIOS Password on BL460c


Can anyone please advise how I can reset my BIOS password on my BL460c-class blade?

I need to make some changes but do not know what the password has been set to. This is a newly purchased server so any default I can try may be useful.

It's resolved now - power server off; DIP switch 5 on the motherboard to "ON". After a reboot it requests that you change this switch back and the next time you access the BIOS you won't get prompted for a password.

Glad it worked out.
