I need to delete the one fingerprint profile on a Lenovo Thinkpad R61 so I can configure it again for the same fingerprint. I have unistalled CSS 8.0 and then cleared the security chip in the BIOS, then installled CSS 8.2 but when I try to add the fingerprint, it says the fingerprint is already known. This laptop was moved into a new domain and the same username in the new domain will not authenticate the domain password in CSS.

Hopefully this IBM link will help you. about half way down the page it talks about how to edit fingerprint profile and also how to delete profiles.

It sounds like when you cleared the security chip in the BIOS, it  cleared the Trusted Platform Module.

You can try to follow the instructions for a System Board Swap on PDF page 31 of the "Client Security Solution 8.2Deployment Guide"

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/thinkvantage_en/css82dg.pdf

Or if it is a server problem, you can write a script to configure the password on the server.  PDF page 39 offers information on password recovery fuction scripts.

Another possibility is to look at the server deployment guides on PDF pages 53 to 59. Some of these guides require some scripts to write for your server. You'll have to select which guide best suites your server environment.

Thanks for the sugestions but I found a tool on the Lenovo site called the fingerprint reader console. This utility allows you to add/edit/delete existing fingerprint profiles using a command line interface. I was able to delete the existing profile by including the old domain name as a prefix to the username since that was the domain used when the fingerprint profile was first generated.

I have attached the code and the pdf document for others to use.
