BIOS management on HP ThinPro

I have a bunch of t510 and t610 clients running ThinPro which I'm in need of managing BIOS settings on. Passwords mostly. I read a post here on how to update BIOS versions, which is nice; but I can't find anything on actually managing the BIOS.

 

This shouldn't be that uncommon. Anyone got any ideas?

Re: BIOS management on HP ThinPro

The Tool HP Repset is included in the ThinPro image which can be executed with a few commands:
Navigate to cd /usr/share/hp  and run "./hprepset R /tmp/mybiossettings.txt"   to read the BIOS settings
The tool creates the file /tmp/mybiossetting.txt with BIOS values in it
you can edit the file, change whatever you want and write back the settings into the BIOS with
./hprepset W /tmp/mybiossetings.txt then Reboot.

Re: BIOS management on HP ThinPro

Robert,

 

I have to ask...  Why isn't this in the HPDM manual or the ThinPro manual?

 

If HP is serious they need to get the ThinPro OS documented so we can get this stuff to work fast without going to a forum and asking questions.  I have had numerous calls to HP over the years and 0 documentation on ThinPro.

 

I think the HP T620 is the best device yet, the T610 has a slow flash drive, I hope they are putting faster ones in the T620 for ThinPro imaging tasks! ;)

 

Thanks,

Joe

Re: BIOS management on HP ThinPro

hprepset doesn't seem to do anything. Ran the commands as you said, and it creates the .txt file, but that's empty.

 

Any ideas?
