Using syscfg to modify BIOS settings on system with setup password

Hi, 

I need to deploy several R720s and am trying to use syscfg to clone the BIOS settings so the machines are all the same.

The problem I am having is that the systems have a setup password so syscfg respond to any commands with "Password not supplied".   Removing the setup passwords is not an option.  I tried various forms of the password commands (e.g. --setuppwd <the password>" but it made no difference.  I am booting the machines with the DTK iso so its running the Linux version. I can't find any syntax or examples in the Dell documentation. Does anyone know the syntax for providing the setup password with syscfg?  


Thanks 

Tom
