improves computing security. If you decide to set a password, read the following
A password can be any combination of up to 64 alphabetic and numeric characters.
For security reasons, it is recommended to use a strong password that cannot be
easily compromised. To set a strong password, use the following guidelines:

Contain at least one alphabetic character and one numeric character
Setup Utility program and hard disk drive passwords are not case sensitive
Not be your name or your user name
Not be a common word or a common name
Be significantly different from your previous passwords
When a Power-On Password is set, you are prompted to type a valid password
each time the server is turned on. The server cannot be used until the valid
password is typed in.
Setting an Administrator Password deters unauthorized users from changing
configuration settings. If you are responsible for maintaining the configuration
settings of several servers, you might want to set an Administrator Password.
When an Administrator Password is set, you are prompted to type a valid
password each time you try to access the Setup Utility program. The Setup Utility
program cannot be accessed until a valid password is typed in.
If both the Power-On Password and Administrator Password are set, you can type
either password. However, you must use your Administrator Password to change
any configuration settings.

hard disk drive. When a Hard Disk Password is set, you are prompted to type a
valid password each time you try to access the hard disk drive.
