Resetting admin password in IBM System p5 510 Express ASMI

These are the steps in resetting the admin password:

0. Re-route stored static in your body via an ESD wrist strap to a
metallic element.

1. Look for the 2 toggle switches and service processor batt. The batt
should be in front of the Power Supply 1 and Power Supply 2 (codes: E1
and E2, see Rear Location Codes on the cover plate). The "very tiny"
toggle switches should be in the area of P1-C14 slot.

I forgot the exact sequence but it should be a combination of the ff. step (2):

2. Remove the battery, toggle the switches to the opposite direction.
Allows some time for the caps to discharge.

3. Move back the toggle switches and put back the batt in its place.

4. Assign your PC to Class C subnet (i.e. masked 255.255.255.0):
IPaddr: 192.168.2.x for HMC1 or
IPaddr: 192.168.3.x for HMC2

5. Ping HMC1 or HMC2. Access the web interface using the default address:
http://192.168.2.147 (for HMC1) or
http://192.168.3.147 (for HMC2)
Note: Sometimes you have to force the https protocol:
Example: https://192.168.2.147 (for HMC1)

6. The default 'admin' password is: admin
The default 'general' password is: general

7. You are required to change the admin password before being allowed
to change ASMI settings.

Globe's HOOQ.TV an (unethical) scam!!

After being terribly disappointed with the subscription stage and after also after a very disappointing test drive (at least Netflix tries to be do-no-evil), I am now very disappointed with the un-subscription of HOOQ.tv with Globe.


Globe sends me a message:


Hi! We'd like to remind you that your free HOOQ will end in 7 days on 10/27/2015. Upon expiry, your subscription will auto-renew to the paid version for P149 per month. If you don't want the paid version, text HOOQ STOP to 8888. before the expiry date. Thank you!


I send the HOOQ STOP to 888 and received:


Sorry, you have entered an invalid keyword. Please make sure your keyword is correct with no extra characters and spaces. For more info on promos, dial *143#, FREE from your Globe/TM mobile phone.


I called Globe Support (211).


Here's the scam:


- GoSurf 999 comes with the HOOQ Free Plan


- After the Free HOOQ Plan (which you did not use because it sucks) expires, it will auto-renew without your consent (!!! UNETHICAL !!!…

Use Private Internet Access (PIA) in DigitalOcean

This runs the PIA VPN using OpenVPN all from the command line.

Move "Hong Kong.ovpn" to "/etc/openvpn/Hong Kong.config" for example.

Modified the following lines.

These are the contents of these files.
