Connect-HPEBIOS on G8 with ESXi on it

Hello, when I use the Connect-HPEBIOS on G9 and G10 all fine. However on G8 it is mandatory to use the ClientLoggedInUserPassword parameter. Our servers host ESXi OS and frankly I don't know what to pass there as parameter or how to get rid of that mandatory parameter! Any hint? I searched and googled but found zero. In one pdf HPE states that the parameter is only required when a server is on WinPE bios.

Re: Connect-HPEBIOS on G8 with ESXi on it

Hi,

BIOS cmdlets for Gen8 work either on windows host or WinPE environment, since your host is a ESXi it is unable to connect to it.

For more information please refer BIOS User Guide
