After recycling an old M3 3650 IBM X Series server the other week, I was stuck trying to get into the IMM, because no one knew what the password was.
The default username of USERID and password of PASSW0RD (with a zero) didn’t work either.
For me it was OK because I could reboot the server and get directly into the BIOS , (Press F1 at boot)
Integrated Management Module.
Reset IMM to defaults.
REMEMBER this will reset the name and IP settings, so you need to update them, and DON’T FORGET to press ‘Save Network Settings’, or nothing happens!
You can now use the default username USERID and default password (PASSW0RD).
Reset IMM Password Remotely
Remotely connect to your IBM server Download the IBM ASU Utility (Note: There’s an x64 bit version, and an x32 bit version, run the correct one to extract the tools).
Run the following command to ensure that the USERID account exists
asu64.exe show IMM.LoginID.1 OR asu.exe show IMM.LoginID.1
It should detect the IMM by IP address and return IMM.LoginID.1=USERID
Note: If it returns a different username you can check each login ID and reset them one by one.
asu64.exe set IMM.password.1 Password123 OR asu.exe set IMM.password.1 Password123
