Dell PowerEdge R720 and R720xd Owner's Manual

Operating With A Setup Password Enabled

If Setup Password is Enabled, enter the correct setup password before modifying most of the System Setup options.

If you do not enter the correct password in three attempts, the system displays the message
Invalid Password! Number of unsuccessful password attempts: <x> System Halted! Must power down.
Even after you shut down and restart the system, the error message is displayed until the correct password is entered. The following options are exceptions:
  • If System Password is not Enabled and is not locked through the Password Status option, you can assign a system password.
  • You cannot disable or change an existing system password.
  • NOTE: You can use the Password Status option in conjunction with the Setup Password option to protect the system password from unauthorized changes.
