we have a small problem with one of our B200 M2 blades.
There is a BIOS password set, so we can not open the boot menu. The bad thing is, nobody seems to remember the password. Is there any way to reset it?

Have you tried Equipment - Server x - right click - Recover Server - Reset CMOS ?

Now that I think of it - are you sure you're referring to B-series and not C-Series? I dont' recall there being any BIOS passwords on B-Series.
For C-Series there's a jumper reset on the motherboard.

i am sure, it is a B200 server. Here is a screenshot of another B200 M2 blade, with the option to set a password.
I tried resetting the CMOS, CIMC and also a BIOS recovery. Unfortunately, it still asks for a password.

good news, we managed to find the password.

Glad to hear you found the pword.
What version of UCSM and BIOS is installed with this system? If there's a documentation gap I'll need the specifics.

We have installed version 2.0(4a) of UCSM. However, the password has been set while the server was still installed in another UCS which is running 1.4(3l).
BIOS version was S5500.1.4.3a.0.061020111739 on the old system and now S5500.2.0.3.0.050720121819
