CCTK LCD Brightness,Password Change, Wake on LAN/WLAN

Hi,

Can CCTK change:

1. Security-->Password Change-->"Allow Non-Admin Password Changes"

2. Video--> LCD Brightness-->"Brightness On Battery" & "Brightness On AC"

3. Power Management-->Wake on LAN/WLAN-->

I don't see these BIOS options in the 2.2 Command Line Interface Reference Guide document.

I have a fairly large laptop deployment coming up (mostly Latitude), and the ability to change these settings would be great using a portable exe.

Re: CCTK LCD Brightness,Password Change, Wake on LAN/WLAN

Hi User20,

CCTK can do many of the things being requested.

1. It is possible to change or clear password

Eg. CCTK --setuppwd=<new password> --valsetuppwd=<old password>

2. Wake on lan

Refer to the help provided in the command CCTK -h wakeonlan

Refer to www.dell.com/.../dell-clnt-config-toolkit-v2.2 for more info.

Re: CCTK LCD Brightness,Password Change, Wake on LAN/WLAN

Hi Shrinidhi, 

Firstly, thank you for the prompt reply. Here is a screenshot of the "Allow Non-Admin Password Changes" setting.

Here is the entry for --setuppwd in the 2.2 reference guide

--setuppwd

Valid Argument

<password>

Description: Sets the setup password. An argument is required. The password cannot be reported.Initially you can set the password. If you want to remove the password, provide one blank space and the old password.

Example

To set the password:
C:\>cctk --setuppwd=<new-password>

To change the password:
C:\>cctk --setuppwd=<old-password> --valsetuppwd=<new-
password>

To remove the password:
C:\>cctk --setuppwd= --valsetuppwd=<old-password>

Does --setuppwd apply to the "Allow Non-Admin Password Changes" checkbox setting ? 

Thanks

Hi User20,

CCTK requires password for setting any value if Setup password has been set for consistency.

Re: CCTK LCD Brightness,Password Change, Wake on LAN/WLAN

Hi Shrinidhi,

I'm aware that CCTK requires the BIOS setup  password for changing settings. Since --setuppwd does not apply to the setting  "Allow Non-Admin Password Changes", is there any other way CCTK can change this, or planned to add this feature in future release ?

RE: CCTK LCD Brightness,Password Change, Wake on LAN/WLAN

Hello User20 - I know this is a very old and probably stale post, but I was wondering if you ever got an answer to the "Allow Non-Admin Password Changes" issue with CCTK.  I'm in version 3.1.2 and am having the same issue.
