BIOS Info Discovery

Hello everyone,

I have uCMDB 8.04 with DDM. I need to discover some Host BIOS info (serial, manufacture, date) and did not find in any existing discovery patterns. I'm just wondering if anybody has done this. I also checked the ContentPack and did not see them. I appreciate any help!

Thanks,
SD

Re: BIOS Info Discovery

Hi Sonny,

i am not aware of such a package. Some of the Information (BIOS UUID) is already available with CP5 and 6.

You can easily create a discovery pattern to get this information.
- Using WMI you can query the Class Win32_BIOS (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394077%28VS.85%29.aspx ).
- In Linux it should be available via the dmidecode command.

Thanks for the info, Ralf! This will be a good exercise for me to learn how to create/edit patterns. Thanks again!
