I am trying to set up HP MIK with our SCCM environment. I was successful with setting BIOS on multiple computers via MIK BIOS Configuration (Configuration Baseline). I can even see the result in Compliance tab.
I want a report for multiple computers containing the BIOS Settings. Dashboard says "... inventory including BIOS data...". But how can I do it? It does not show any BIOS option:
Can MIK even do it?
HP Client Settings with HW Inventory are deployed.
SCCM version 1906
HP MIK 184.108.40.206
HP MIK Client 220.127.116.11

could it be usefull for you ?
how many system parameter do you want to collect from BIOS ?

I have found it too. But I think there are limited options for reporting the BIOS settings. We need report such a boot options, boot order, lan/wan switching and more. Similar report like from HP BCU, but for thousand computers. I thought that report from HP MIK is able to do it.

I never tried something like that.
HP developed also Powershell Client Management script library that includes cmdlets able to do the same things you can do via BCU.
you can run the script on managegement console using as target the remote PC, you get the result on a management console. I guess there should be a way to redirect the remote client reply into a file. in aPS loop it could be possible to create a huge file with the reply of the thousand remote Client or thousand small files , one for each remote client.
Then in some way you need another script able to handle all that data and transferom them in a format you like (sometime I use gawk script to manage text file).
I would be better to do it via SCCM. I will try , if I have time on the next week , to run a Hardware inventory, in my case , I have a lab where I can have max 4 clients + PC with SCCM virtual machine.

I updated to latest HP MIK server version sp103703.exe MIK server 18.104.22.168
I started my SCCM Console
I expanded HP Mik
I selected HP Reports
I cliked on Launch Dashboard
Then Hardware inventory
at this point , when i Click on "Class" arrow, I see several tens WMI classes ,
now I have to understand how to get some data from my client , such as: manufacturer , model number, BIOS version , serial number , UEFI boot order, Windows version.

I'm not a SCCM expert.
what happens if you sedn a powershell cmdlet ,via SCCM agent, to a pc and this powershell script is able to collect all BIOS settings ?
will the result sent back to SCCM console and possibily saved into a file or saved locally to the PC ?
