I got it working....using conrep and conrepeditor to add asset tag to BIOS config..the goal is for the system to read the BIOS during boot and pass to SIM during identification..

Re: Asset Tool and SIM 6.3`

HI,

I am interested in trying to set the Asset Tag field in the BIOS online without booting in WinPE or the like. Is this what you did? Can you post your command line?

At the end of the day you still have to reboot for the BIOS to read the data.....conrep -s to save the dat file edit/ add the tag and conrep -l to load then reboot and rediscover. Conrepeditor is the best tool to edit add the tag

Re: Asset Tool and SIM 6.3`

When you say 'At the end of the day you still have to reboot for the BIOS to read the data' you mean that the change in the BIOS does not take effect until reboot? I don't really care if I have to reboot as this can be scheduled for Out of Hours but I don't want to have to boot all my servers into PE.

Ikr....that was the main requirement...I don't boot into PE I just reboot after installing necessary files.

Re: Asset Tool and SIM 6.3`

Just wondering how you installed the Drivers to work in an online non-Pe environment?
