Problem with the UCS 220 M5 boot menu (requesting a password)

Hi everybody!!

I´m trying to load an iso in a UCS 220 M5, after I restart the server and press F6 for boot menu a password is required to continue (I can´t even see the boot menu). Does anybody know which default password is set for this option? I already tryied with "cisco123", "cisco1234", "password" and they didn´t work, or anybody knows how to reset that password??

 

Thank you very much!!

I have a few UCS 220 M3 in production. Never seen a password for the boot menu. So my guess is that it's a password set in the BIOS, by some local administrator.

Assuming you have tried 

"Cisco12345"

"Cisco123"

"Cisco"

"password" , then see  https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/c/hw/C220M5/install/C220M5/C220M5_chapter_010.html#task_z11_ncv_jz

Using the Clear Password Header (J38, Pins 13 - 14)
