Lost server case key

  1. Today at work I needed to open up one of the servers, however one of my co-workers said he could not find the actual key to unlock the case.

    This particular case is an Antec Soho File server and it uses a simple tubular key. Is there any way to some how get a replacement? Could I bring the drive bay door (on the front) that uses the same key to a hardware store and have them replicate the key?

    why not just use the key to the front?

    There is only one key, it unlocks the front and side. The front door was not locked though so I can open and close it and access the drives.

    Take it to a locksmith. Taking it to a hardware store may or may not work. The personnel there might only cut from existing keys and not be locksmiths.
