Find all computers with Unknown bios password and capturing Status codes

Hi all,

 

I've discovered that some of our computers have Bios/UEFI passwords set where we don't know the password and I'm trying to use WS1 to find out the scope of this issue.

 

I've created a powershell script that uses cctk.exe to set a Field in the Bios and then captures if it fails/success

 

My question is without WS1 Intelligence how can I get WS1 capture this and then report on the results.

I have an option where the script throws the results on a server, but this wouldn't work for any machines that are off the network.

 

Any ideas are welcome

 

Thanks


Shane

You could use sensors for this. But without  Intelligence there is no way to have a report as far as I know.

Hi,

You can write the values in the custom attributes and then make the reports APIs. This work for me. I collect many params from Win10 devices by custom attributes.

You can use the standard solution from VMware or you can create a script that devices will send their parameters to the API server. Then make a task in the windows scheduler which will run this script.

I am using the last solution.

Thanks Oleg,

 

I'll start looking in that idea.

Hi Shane,

as example

First solution. Easy and fast. - link

Second solution. You need to know how to code on powershell. 😃
