DH 87 RL I have set the user and supervisor password and are now unable to clear it again

Hello,

I set both passwords and want to clear now, but I don't find any option in the Visual BIOS to clear it again. I can only set the password again. An empty entry is not allowed.

Hello,

yes, I have successful cleared the pw with the method of Al Hill - setting the jumper. But it would be better if there would be an option in the Visual BIOS itself.

But many thanks, take this as a suggestion.

No, that would create a security hole through which someone might be able to remove the password(s) that you put in place and then take over control of your system...
