I am attempting to use the CLI option of the Dell Command Update application to trigger BIOS updates on a few Optiplex models, I am using:
"dcu-cli.exe /applyUpdates -reboot=enable"
When this is run it finds the new BIOS, downloads it and states its "Installing" but it does not reboot nor does the BIOS update. I have the tool configured beforehand using:
"dcu-cli /configure -scheduleManual -updateType=bios -biosPassword="password""
Is it a bug, or am I missing something?
I thought I had the same issue the other day, but maybe I didn't wait long enough for the PC to reboot. It seems that sometimes computers start shutting down within a minute and other times it takes significantly longer. Maybe it randomises the delay before the reboot?
In any case, I just did a couple of of machines using the following command and they all eventually rebooted themselves after a BIOS update.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\CommandUpdate\dcu-cli.exe" /applyUpdates -outputlog="C:\Temp\Dell-Update.log" -reboot=enable
I have similar but reverse issue. I run "dcu-cli.exe /applyUpdates -reboot=disable" and there are a few machines that actually reboot after a BIOS install and some done. Is this a bug?
Does Dell look at these messages?
