Configure BIOS - Advanced task type

Deployment Solution for Dell Servers

This task lets you view and change all of the BIOS configuration settings.

See Configure BIOS - Simple task type

See About configuration files

This task supports tokenization. You can use tokens in the configuration file. Tokens are a text substitution for the information that is stored in the CMDB. For example, %COMPNAME%. Deployment Solution for Dell queries the CMDB for the information that matches any tokens in your configuration file. Those tokens are then replaced dynamically with the correct information.

You can access this task from the Create New Job or Task page.

See Creating a deployment task for a Dell server

This task contains the following options:

  • Only execute on systems if sysID matches

    Select this option if you want this task to run on the servers that have a matching system identification number. For example, 0235 might match an R710 server.

  • Only execute on systems with same BIOS version

    Select this option if you want this task to run on the servers that have a matching BIOS version. For example, 1.3.6.

  • Import existing BIOS configuration

    Select this option if you want to import the latest, existing BIOS configuration file from the CMDB. This file is the configuration file that was captured the last time that the server booted into Dell WinPE. You can then view and change any option in the list.
