Dell BIOS Issue - Password Changes setting unlocked by default
We started to have reports of workstation with the system password set, our initial though was they had reset the Admin BIOS password or similar.
But on closer inspection we found even though we had set the Admin BIOS password they can still add a system password!!
This is because the default setting from the factory is to allow a system password to be set even if locked by the BIOS Admin password. Found under
(Security, Password Changes) What’s worse is we can't even adjust this setting to locked using the Dell Client Configuration Utility!!!
I currently have Dell looking into this for me, has anyone else come across this problem? I don't fancy change our 700+ machines BIOS's!
Currently effecting our Optiplex 755, 745 and GX620 machines. Worth checking your BIOS Settings!!
