Try to set / change the password BIOS admin via the script WMI on ThinkStation D20

Hello Lenovo Community!

Start using the WMI Lenovo_SetBiosSetting class on a D20 system.

If I understand the documentation that there is a limitation on the BIOS password in the past, but I updated to the latest BIOS Rev who support States was added for this feature.

I use a script that changes the supervisor on computers password successfully thinkpad, but when even to run the script from command line on the D20 system it returns "SUCCESS" however to change the password did not effect!

I'm using the right parameters are the standard of lenovo

' pap, oldpass newpass, ascii, we.

I thought maybe "pap" is not the correct setting for password Admin on the D20, however the WMI available, posted 2010 guide, does not show otherwise.

Someone at - it an example script that they can display successfully change the password on a D20 system?

Please and thx!


Did you run the SaveSetting script after changing the password?

You can get the SaveSetting script from the sample scripts D20 located at the following link:

You can use the script SetAdminPassword from the library of scripts of series E, then a follow-up that with something like what follows before restarting:

"cscript SaveSetting.vbs" originalpwd, ascii, we.

Replace 'originalpwd' with all what your existing password was at the time wherever you booted the system.

  • How can I change/remove password BIOS on Satellite A300?

    I have a satellite A300-1BZ running Windows vista Home premium. For some reason, there intermittentlystarted requesting a password of BIOS or boot when I turn on. I have never put this password myself and have no idea how or where to look to remove it.

    I can turn on if I remove the battery without asking for the password, but if I shut off and turn on again, then it asks again. Advice apprecieated.

    Thank you.

    The history is somewhat strange. Cannot set password BIOS only.
    Is anyone else using your laptop?

    > I can light up if I remove the battery without asking for the password, but if I shut off and turn on again, then it asks again.
    To be honest I don t understand this. If you just understand that you can use your laptop and bypass the BIOS password if you turn the notebook on power only, right?
    But with the battery inside it start and ask BIOS password?

  • Try to set up the ICS using a WIFI dongle on your desktop via a router to other machines


    I have an intermediate knowledge of networking systems, but I'm a little confused here and looking for a little help. That's what I try to do;

One of the machines has a wireless dongle which is connected to a connection high speed of our adjoining office (and their network). I'm trying to set up the PC with the dongle to use internet connection sharing with the rest of the PC. Is this possible? And I need specific adjustment / cable on the router?
    Any help would be appreciated. It's probably also worth noting that I am unable to do a lot with the router/modem that is actually connected to the internet, as it is one) in a nearby office and b) not ours.

  • How can I set/change the name of the .htm file in WebaHelp Pro output?

    RH 9.0

    (Unfortunately), I started with another project which I modified. I am told that I need to generate the output WebHelp Pro (first time doing so) and that the head start .html file should be titled: "help.html".

    For the life of me, I can't find where I put the name of output file. (it's probably easier). In the Generate dialog, when I type:


    under "File exit and Start Page", I get a folder called "help.html" and all html files are in there. The start page is called something else.

    How can I change the name of the start page? (there are 11 files with this prefix, so I doubt rename it in Windows Explorer works).

    If I'm not clear and you need more details, please let me know. Thank you very much.


    The name of the project is the startup page - if you need to change it to help.html, then your project should be called 'help' - use the file > option rename project to change.

    BTW - you must use right RoboServer? That's what means the designation 'Pro '.

  • ExtendScript try/catch difference when the script took the ESTK and Illustrator


    I wrote an ExtendScript for Illustrator using the toolbox toolbox ExtendScript (ESTK).  It works fine when running scripts it in Illustrator from the ESTK (using the target application functionality).

    However when I run it directly in Illustrator (by selecting it in the drop-down file menu > Scripts) I get a runtime error.  Is this normal?  Should I expect differences when you run the script in these two different ways?

    The error is in this feature...


    function itemUsable (arr, item) {}

    use var = true;

    try {}

    arr [point];

    usable = true;

    } catch (e) {}

    $.global.alert (e);

    usable = false;


    usable back;



    The code point is around the issue of the Illustrator to throw errors when accessing properties that do not always exist.  Connected ESTK the try/catch statement intercepts the error "No such item" and then sets the function returns false.

    When ran directly in Illustrator, the lights error message but the try/catch does not seem to stop the output script.

    The only difference I see is when to run the script in ESTK the dropdown next to the application target dropdown is always (and has only the option) 'main '.  Run the script directly in Illustrator, when the error is thrown this menu option drop-down is set to the 'transient' value.

    See this screenshot for an example of what I mean

  • Can someone help me change the script function?

    I have a script for indesign:

    which is made by Kasyan Servetsky, function: remove all objects from the missing link, it works fine, but only works on the single file,.
    now, I want to change the purpose of the function to let him work on all open files.

    for example, I opened more than a dozen files, all the files have disappeared as objects, I want to delete all items in the missing link in the file by a simple click the script,

    is this possible?

    Hi Harvey.

    I guess that's what you expect below,


    var link, image, image;

    var openDocs = app.documents.

    var openDocsLen = openDocs.length;

    for (var d = 0; d)< opendocslen;="" d="">

    currDoc = openDocs [d],

    Links = currDoc.links,.

    counter = 0;

    for (var i = links.length - 1; I > = 0; i--) {}

    If (links [i] .status == LinkStatus.LINK_MISSING) {}

    try {}

    link = links [i];

    image = link.parent;

    Frame = image.parent;

    Frame.Remove ();

    counter ++;


    {} catch (err)

    $.writeln (i + "-" + err);
