Attempting to verify if Bios Passwords are set on a 64bit OS.

I am running the following PowerShell command against a 64bit system with Dell Monitor 64bit version 9.1 installed. I am unable to retrieve the information for AtributeName and IsSet objects. Has anyone encountered this issue. It seems as if the classname dcim_biospassword does not contain object entries. Any help would be appreciated.

I had used this as a reference.

Get-CimInstance -Namespace root\dcim\sysman -Classname dcim_biospassword | Select-Object -Property AttributeName, IsSet

RE: Attempting to verify if Bios Passwords are set on a 64bit OS.

Hi,

Please check if DSM services(DSM SA Data Manager and DSM SA Event Manager) are running, other classes are getting enumerated like DCIM_Chassis, DCIM_ComputerSystem, DCIM_BiosEnumeration , and also check the command without filtering it to ensure that output is returning values or any errors. Run the PowerShell with admin privileges.

Example : Get-CimInstance -Namespace root\dcim\sysman -Classname dcim_chassis

Still issue persists, please share the error screen shot and system details (like model no, and OS version).
