    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.

    I can't believe that a Dell appliance designed for Enterprise use can't update Dell BIOSes used in an Enterprise environment, i.e. with a password. We are currently evaluating KACE appliances and if they can't get this right it doesn't inspire much confidence in the product.
