Running Dell Command Update in target computer

Hi everybody.

I'm trying to run Dell Command Update in CLI mode in target computer in order to configure the bios password.

I set up a command step with the following line:

@(pfx86)\dell\commandupdate\dcu-cli.exe /configure -biospassword="biospassword"

Where @(pfx86) is a custom variable with value c:\program files (x86)

I get the error "Command script returned error code 1" 

Checket that dcu-cli.exe exists in the target computer and in the path provided.

Any ideas?


Thank you very much.

  • Solved: the value of the custom variable path should be: "c:\program files (x86)"


  • Quick question for you.  Why did you use a custom variable there?  Thanks!
