BIOS settings configuration via HPDM

t620
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello guys,

 

Could you please help me out how to deploy following BIOS settings to HP thincleint t620 ? I know its possible by BCU but i how to do would be great if you guys provide me performing steps?

 

To enable HP True Graphics for multiple monitors on the HP t620:

1. Restart the thin client and press F10 to access the BIOS.

2. Select Advanced ► Integrated Graphics.

3. Set Integrated Graphics to Force.

4. Set UMA Frame Buffer Size to 1G

 

 

I have to deploy above BIOS settings to around 600 thin clients (t620 Win10IOT) via HPDM remotely ?

 

Waiting for your positive response?

 

 

Best Regards

Syed

BIOS settings configuration via HPDM

The general method would be:

1. Setup a sample unit with the needed BIOS settings 

2. Capture BIOS Settings with HPDM File & Registry Task

3. Deploy the BIOS Settings which you just captured in step 2 to rest of the unit

 

I have attached the sample template for reference, though it was name as t520, should still be worked on t620.

 

Please test it before applying to production.

BIOS settings configuration via HPDM

Hey Chen,

 

Many thanks for your reply!

Your method is clear but i need more info on your mentioned steps.

 

Like i have one management server for every site's thin-client management where HPDM is installed and accessing the HPDM console.

BCU files are  alreday copied on every think client at the time of image deployment location is :  C:\EF\Setup\sp81841

bcu.PNG

 

Now go to mgmt server and select the particular device and drag and drop _File and Registry template:

bcu2.PNG

 

Click on Add button then following windows will appear:

 

bcu3.PNG

 

Select "Capture Files" and click Ok:

 

bcu4.PNG

 

Here in the File or folder with full path, which path should i need to mention actually BCU files are only in thin-client not in the mgmt server.

what i have tried in the above two paths but doesn't work:

first path:               cd C:\EF\Setup\sp81841

second path:         BiosConfigUtility64.exe /get "c:\temp\t520_BiosConfig.txt"   

 

 

When i tried your script: File and Registry > Add > script > t520 Get Bios Config_Win10 IoT.xml  (copy and paste ) and click Ok. task failed with foloowing error:

BIOS settings configuration via HPDM

Hi Syed,

 

Sorry for my late response, for some reasons I didn't receive the email notification of your reply.

 

The .zip files I attached are actually the exported template from my DM SERVER which include both the .xml file and the related payload files. So simply import the .zip file instead of extract it.

 

To import a exported HPDM Template: open HPDM Console, navigate to "Template" -> "Import" -> "Exported Templates" and select the .zip file I have attached.

 

Then you should be able to see two templates(Get & Set) in the Win10 IoT tab. Edit the template with your BIOS files to create your own template.

 

 

In my sample template, to get the BIOS template, I first added a deploy files subtask to push the BCU file to c:\temp.

 

You can check that after importing the template.

BIOS settings configuration via HPDM

Hey Chen,

 

Again thank you veru much for your response!

 

Now its working but i haven't use your template because in set_520.txt file i need to specify some other settings then i have unzip edit txt file zip again but after editing and zipping again when template importing it says payload missing.

 

I have made one Get and Set templates with _File and Registry ofcourse with your help and finally it worked.

 

What i have done i captured BIOS setting by applying Get templates and its ran successfull after i addeded that bios setting txt file in the Set template and applied this task to client and it also worked successfully.

 

But my question is in our set template we ticked reboot after all subtasl finished, so its rebboted after tasks are performmed successfully and when i go to thin clinet  by remote desktop connection and go to drive C and check "Temp" folder inside are files :

eee.PNG

These files should be deleted after rebbot because its in temp folder even i tried with write filter disabled and after set bios then enable the write filter but still files are there.

 

My questiion is after applying set bios config template, these files need to be there or we can delete these files after successfull execution of set bios config template because starting temp folder is empty and i think after first reboot temp needs to becleared. Please clear my doubt regarding theses files it should be there always or we can delete.

 

 

 

 

Thnaking you!

Have  a nice weekend.

 

Best Regards

Syed

Hi Syed,

 

I'm not a BIOS export, from HPDM perspective I think you can add delete tasks after setting BIOS configuration to clean up the temporary files (I tried in my lab and didn't see any abnormal).

Hey Chen,

 

Sorry my question is concern with HPDM only, you mean after successfull execution of the task "set_bios_config_win10IoT"  then create a task by follwoing command to delete the temp files.

 

cd c:\TEMP

del BiosConfigUtility64.exe

del set_t620_BiosConfig.txt

 

Or how did you tried in your lab setup via HPPDM to delete files ?

 

 

Thnak you veru much for your help and support!

 

 

Regards

Syed

BIOS settings configuration via HPDM

I created a template sequence with 2 templates

1. Set_Bios_Config_Win10IoT

2. File & Registry template with "DELETE FILE" subtask 

 

You don't have to use the command to delete file, we have this functionality built in already.

BIOS settings configuration via HPDM

Hey Chen,

 

Last reply worked it means the second template will be deleted the temp files and alreday checked by logging to thin-client console and temp files are deleted.

 

But the next thing is that if i need to verify that my bios settings are  really changed, so i need to apply Get_Bios_Config_win10IoT to see what is the current BIOS settings after applied set template ?

 

But BIOS settings are didn't effect  after applying template "Get_Bios_Settings_Win10Iot" to see the effect on which i got the file and see inside t620_BiosConfig.txt but no thing changed same as before.

 

First i applied template "Set_Bios_Config_Win10:

 

set01.PNGset02.PNGset03.PNG

 

 

Sussessfull result of the above task:

 

sett_bios.PNG

 

Next template is to delete files from temp folder :

 

del01.PNGdel2.PNG        

 

 

 

 

task is executed successfully as follows:

 

delete-files.PNG

 

 

 

 

Now everytemplates is working and executed but after that if we check the result by applying "Get_Bios_Config_Win10IoT" then got the same result.

 

only two settings need to be changed in the bios setting:

 

Integrated Graphics:        Force

UMA Frame Buffer Size: 1G

 

set_t620_BiosConfig.txt
