Manage BIOS on HPE ProLiant servers using PowerShell Cmdlets

New HPEBIOSCmdlets 2.1.0.1 release is available on Webportal and PowerShell Gallery.
Web Portal Link: https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_b07257fde7d64a73947ef37bd0
PowerShell Gallery Link: https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/HPEBIOSCmdlets/2.1.0.1

Refer User Guide and Release notes for more details.

Highlights of the HPEBIOSCmdlets:
- Provides interface to HPE BIOS RBSU\UEFI utilities to configure the BIOS settings.
- BIOS settings can be configurable on HPE ProLiant Gen8 (AMD and Intel), Gen9, and Gen10 (AMD and Intel) servers remotely.
- Supports non-ProLiant servers such as StoreEasy, StoreVirtual, and StoreOnce.
- The target machine can be a bare metal server (does not require any OS to be installed).
- Multithreading helps configure ‘n’ number of servers at once. For better performance, multithreading is used when one cmdlet sends data to multiple targets at the same time.
- You can establish a connection to multiple target servers by providing the range of IP addresses and the related username and password.
- Cloning is possible from one server to multiple servers.
- Provides a better error handling mechanism for BIOS feature supportability and its dependency.
- Provides a logging mechanism to diagnose a problem quickly.
- Provides information about cmdlets, parameters, and parameter value supportability on target servers (Get-HPECmdletInfo).

Re: Manage BIOS on HPE ProLiant servers using PowerShell Cmdlets

Hi,

There are is no cmdlet available in HPEBIOSCmdlets Module.

You can use the "Update-HPEiLOFirmware" cmdlet which allows you to update the firmwares like iLO, BIOS etc that is available in HPEiLOCmdlets module.

You can download the HPEiLOCmdlets 2.0.0.1 and install from HPE Download Page or from PowerShell Gallery
