biosconfigutility syntax with multiple current passwords?
All of our computers do nothave the same bios passwords. Some have the password set and some still have no password because they are new systems out of the box or just never had the password set for whatever reason.
Is there some way to do replicated setup in an automated way and have it try multiple current passwords and not assume that the password is always blank or assume that the password is always not blank and then fail otherwise?
For instance, if the password has already been set, continue using that password to do the replicated setup and if the password is blank then change it to the current password and then do the replicated setup?
Re: biosconfigutility syntax with multiple current passwords?
This utility is installed along with the agent itself. The binaries are copied inside ../SSM folder at the same level as the ../Agent folder. You can check with support if at all there is any updated version corresponding to the HPCA version you are using, else the MR version should work fine.
You can also create a ZSERVICE which can be deployed to all the clients.
The ZCREATE method for the service is “biosconfig.tcl -cspwd “<XXXXXXXX>" -nspwd "<XXXXXX>”
During the deployment, “biosconfig.tcl”, creates “biosconfig.cmd” which contains the command “"C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\SSM\BiosConfigUtility.exe" /cspwd:"XXXX" /nspwd:"XXXXX"”.
YOu can modify the command line as per the requirement and also as per suggested by Richard.
