    As previously announced, we adopted a new Dell Updates framework starting in the KACE Systems Management Appliance (SMA) release 11.1. This change was triggered by Dell’s plan to end of life the framework previously used by KACE. This new framework developed by Dell is supposed to bring additional capabilities as it matures. We are keeping a close eye on these incremental improvements made by Dell and are hopeful that things like mass passing of passwords will come in time to develop against.

    Add us to the list of customers that would like this feature. We are currently using the work around that involves scripting in Kace http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/deploying-a-current-model-dell-bios-update-when-there-is-a-bios-password

    This works, but the updating of DELL bios with passwords should be built into the k1000. If it's possible for users to create a script to do this, it has to be possible for this to be programed into Kace.
