Unfortunately, there is probably not a way to unlock this unless you reinstall the HP Diagnostics server.

Re: HP DIagnostics- Admin User Profile password reset

If you are not using LDAP and are using the standard security the passwords are hashed in the file ../etc/.htaccess If you replace that file either with a backup, etc.

Here is the content of the file from a default install, the admin password in this case is admin

# This is the password file for the Mercury Diagnostics Server (standalone)
#
# To add/edit this file, use the "User Management" web interface
# (http://:/security/)
#
# The format of each line below is: user:
#

user: /LBPPMBtiTh6.
superuser: TJBGPyBEPkgX2
admin: Vc3TBN0P/ab8k
mercury: De0QPi1T6H8cw

On Windows, a restart of "Diagnostics server" service is needed to make the server aware of such modification
