Scripting with Proliant SL250


       I have an SL250 Gen8 that I am working on. I am trying to write a powershell script to pull the bios settings. I understand that the HP Client management interface is supposed to provide a WMI namespace in root/hp/instrumentedBIOS as well as other classes. After installation it is still missing. The Bios Configuration Utility is not returning any results, tried multiple versions. concrep and hprcu give too much information. I just want the bios settings and their current values which should be done simply in powershell using the command: Get-WmiObject -Namespace root/hp/instrumentedBIOS -Class hp_biosSetting


Please tell me where I can get the proper namespaces installed. Thank you.

Re: Scripting with Proliant SL250



The utility providing namespace is not compatible with enterprise servers.  My research shows it is for Dektop\laptop\notebooks.


However you can learn more about scripting from the below URL: ( Insight Providers using scripting)

Refer page # 23 onwards for scripting:


I hope you find this informtion helpful!
