Solved!

[BCU] Signature error in password file...

HP Recommended

Hey guys,

 

I'm using the HP BIOS Configuration Utility (BCU v. 4.0.13.1) to change BIOS configuration.

So I set up a new BIOS password with the HPQPswd tool.

Everything worked fine. Password is activated.

After that I tried to do some changes relating to the boot order.

But everytime, wether with a config file nor with the command "/setvalue:"Filename.txt" /cspwdfile:"filename.bin"", the following error message appears:

 

<ERROR msg="Signature error in password file: Password.bin" />

<ERROR msg="BCU return value" real="10" translated="10" />

 

So can someone help me with that? 

 

Thanks for your response!

 

Greetings,

 

KKlein

Hi Klein,

 

Can you try this command line to see if it works:

 

BiosConfigUtility.exe /setconfig:"Filename.txt" /cspwdfile:"filename.bin"

 

Notes:

 

Filename.txt = repset file containing the settings and value.

 

Filename.bin = password bin file containing the encrypted password.

 

Thanks.

Hi vtby,

 

first, thanks for your answer!

 

I've also tried this, but I receive the same error message using this command line.

 

Any other idea?

 

Thanks!

Hi Klein,

 

According to the BCU user guide on the Manageability website http://hp.com/go/clientmanagement , the error return code = 10 that means "Valid password not provided".

 

I would suggest you to try the following:

 

1. Re create the password bin file 

 

2.  Provide the full path to the password bin file

 

example:

 

BIOSConfigUtility.exe /setconfig:"filename.txt" /cspwdfile:"c:\myshare\password.bin"

 

where:

password.bin is located in c:\myshare

 

Thanks.
