DELL BIOS update with Group Policy Object

celmajj used Ask the Experts™
Dear All,

I have a couple of machines around the world connected to a domain. I have download DELL command configure and create an .exe to deploy with GPO to machines. The .exe contains the bios config password.
I would like to know if the same .exe can be used for machines that are setup with Legacy bios and UEFI bios?
Or do I need to create one .exe file for each case?
Is it a problem on a machine already getting the bios config password if it boot many times and receive the GPO?
Or do I have to check if the password has been set and do nothing in the case?

I have never got a Dell BIOS run silently, but if I did I would push out a schedule task via GPO.  So if you have that script do it this way.

Why don't you use iDRAC / Lifecycle Controller to do this?
