Using the Setup Password
Assigning a Setup Password
You can assign a setup password only when the Setup Password is
Not Enabled. To assign a setup password, highlight the Setup Password
option and press the <+> or <–> key. The system prompts you to enter
and verify the password.
NOTE: The setup password can be the same as the system password. If the two
passwords are different, the setup password can be used as an alternate system
password. The system password cannot be used in place of the setup password.
You can use up to 32 characters in your password.
As you type, placeholders appear in the field.
The password assignment is not case-sensitive. Certain key combinations
are invalid and if you enter one, the system beeps. To erase a character,
press <Backspace> or the left-arrow key.
When you verify the password, the Setup Password changes to Enabled.
The next time you enter the System Setup program, the system prompts
you for the setup password.
A change to the Setup Password option becomes effective immediately
(restarting the system is not required). Page 68 Monday, August 9, 2010 3:07 PM
