Recently we dragged a heavy box next to the HP ML150 G6 Server which had a chassis bezel key sticking out of it. So the bezel key broke in half.

Is it possible to buy just a replacement key or they are all unique to their corresponding bezels doors? All I found on the internet is just this message on the HP forum, that was not answered by anyone.

So are these keys all the same, or do I need to get an exact specific one for our server?

I'm not aware of anyone who owns every single ML150 G6 - only they would be able to definitively answer this question of course... – Chopper3 Feb 8 '12 at 19:16

How bad is the lock broken? Is the bezel locked? I am guessing it is either locked or needs to be locked soon.

I do not have this server but I fond that these are just smaller desk/cabinet locks. Here is a spare parts page for your server These are not the best way to secure a server.

519731-001 is the part-nubmer for the bezel. According to the description and comments from others, it should include a lock and key.

These locks are barrel / tubular locks. and typically have a 3-4 digit number stamped on them. If you just need a replacement and the lock is in tact. Go to eBay and search for key and the number. Sometimes you have success at a locksmith.

IF its not locked, remove the lock/cam assembly and bring to a hardware store/locksmith.

That P/N does include the actual lock - see this; – Chopper3 Feb 8 '12 at 19:29
the lock is not broken just the key. I don't really have a need to have server locked, but if not locked the bezel doors keeps flailing around. I saw the part number before, but for some reason it is not possible to buy just the lock and key, you have to buy the entire bezel assembly. I checked multiple sources including the HP's own parts store. Take a look at the comment on the HP support board referred above. – Vlad Feb 9 '12 at 2:55
