hprest.exe type HPBios not available

I am using hprest.exe to set different Bios settings like ServerAssetTag which are located at the type HpBios.1.2.0

Now i have a problem with one ProLiant ML350 Gen9 out of 10, where hprest says that the type HPBios. is not available: Unable to locate instance for 'HPBios.'

If I use the command types than the problem ML350 Gen9 returns this:

 

hprest > types
Type options:
AccountService.1.0.0
BaseNetworkAdapter.1.1.0
Chassis.1.0.0
Collection.1.0.0
ComputerSystem.1.0.0
EthernetNetworkInterface.0.92.0
EventService.1.0.0
ExtendedError.1.0.0
FwSwVersionInventory.1.0.0

PowerMetrics.0.11.0
ServiceRoot.1.0.0
SessionService.1.0.0
SnmpService.1.0.0
ThermalMetrics.0.10.0
VirtualMedia.1.0.0

And we see HPBios.1.2.0 is missing, on an other ML350 Gen9 with the same Bios Version, ILO Version and UEFI enabled i get following output via hprest types:

 

 

hprest > types
Type options:
AccountService.1.0.0

HpiLOActiveHealthSystem.1.0.0
HpiLODateTime.1.0.0
HpiLOEmbeddedMedia.1.0.0
HpiLOFederatedGroupCapping.1.0.0
HpiLOFederationGroup.1.0.0

PowerMetrics.0.11.0
ServiceRoot.1.0.0
SessionService.1.0.0
SnmpService.1.0.0
ThermalMetrics.0.10.0
VirtualMedia.1.0.0

So this types are missing on the problem Sever:

 

HpBaseConfigs.0.10.0
HpBios.1.2.0
HpBiosMapping.1.2.0
HpServerPciDevice.1.0.0
HpiSCSISoftwareInitiator.1.0.0

Would be nice if someone can point me in the right direction why this type is available on 9 of my 10 ML350 Gen9?
(I already tryed reflash 2.30 ilo4 firmware and reset ilo to factory defaults - nothing helped)

Thanks a lot!

Re: hprest.exe type HPBios not available

I once had this problem after upgrading the iLO or BIOS firmware (i don't remember which one exactly). Some types are missing, exactly as the ones that you stated here. Did you try to reboot your blade after upgrading the firmware? When I reboot the server, I could finally find the types which were missing previously. Hope this helps.
