  • System Bios Date

    Hi,
    I'm very new to this product.

    I can see the system Bios Date under properties / system /other system information.
    How can I export this or create a report showing this for every server.

    Thanks

    You'd have to test this on a few computers to make sure it looks correct, but WMI has a class called Win32_BIOS. You can add that class and run against a selection of computers. Once finished there is a column called ReleaseDate that seems to correspond to the information you see in SystemBiosDate.

      Thank you very much for the swift reply.
      I am not sure that I fully understand what I need to do but I will give it a try later and let you know how I get on.

      Thanks again.

        Hi cmccullough,

        I have tried do as you suggested but being really new to this I am not able to do as you suggest.I don't know what add a class means.

        This is what I have tried:
        Right clicked a server.
        WMI - Execute Query
        New
        Look up class

        There is then a alphabetical list to choose from but no WIN32_Bios
        It goes from Win32_ActionCheck to Win32_CheckCheck

        Can you give give me an idiots guide to achieving this please.

        Thank you

          When you click New, don't use the Lookup Class option, simply type in the name of the class.

            Hello again... Still can't get this to work.

            I have done as suggested and typed the name of the class in the name field. I typed Win32_BIOS and clicked OK.
            The fields that now appear are:
            Path
            Namespace
            Server
            Derivation
            Property count
            Relpath
            Dynasty
            Superclass
            Class
            Genus

            I can't see anything for Release date...
            When I add all the fields available and run there is nothing that comes back as all fields are blank.

            Am I doing something wrong?
