HP Client Management Interface
HP Client Management Interface (HP CMI) is a free management tool that seamlessly integrates HP
business PCs into the managed IT environment. HP CMI provides an interface that simplifies the
integration of HP business computers with popular industry system management tools (including
Microsoft Systems Management Server, IBM Tivoli Software, HP Operations) and customized
management applications. Using HP CMI, systems management tools and applications can request
in-depth client inventory, receive health status information, and manage system BIOS settings by
communicating directly with the client computer, reducing the need for agent or connector software to
achieve integration.
HP Client Management Interface is based on industry standards that include Microsoft Windows
Management Interface (MS WMI), Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM), System
Management BIOS (SMBIOS), and Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI). HP CMI is a
foundation technology utilized in HP Client Management Solutions. HP CMI provides flexibility in
choosing how to manage HP client computers.
Regardless of the system management tools the IT department uses, managing both hardware and
software assets is important to keeping IT costs low and the business agile. The IT administrator can
access the HP Client Management Interface by writing simple scripts and integrating those scripts to
the management solution of their choice.
HP Client Management Interface used in conjunction with system management software can:
● Request in-depth client inventory information—Capture detailed information about the
processors, hard drives, memory, BIOS, drivers, including sensor information (such as fan
speed, voltage, and temperature).
● Receive health status information—Subscribe to a wide range of client hardware alerts (such as
over-temperature, fan stall, and hardware configuration changes) to be sent to the system
management console, application, or to the local client computer. Alerts are sent real-time when
triggered by hardware events.
● Manage system BIOS settings—Perform F10 functions including setting and changing the BIOS
passwords and computer boot order remotely from the system management console on any or
all client systems without having to visit each machine.
For more information on HP Client Management Interface, refer to http://www.hp.com/go/hpcmi/.
HP SoftPaq Download Manager
HP SoftPaq Download Manager is a free, easy-to-use interface for locating and downloading software
updates for the HP client PCs in the environment. By specifying models, operating system, and
language, it is easy to quickly locate, sort, and select the SoftPaqs that are need. To download
HP SoftPaq Download Manager, visit http://www.hp.com/go/sdm.
HP System Software Manager
HP System Software Manager (SSM) is a free utility that automates remote deployment of device
drivers and BIOS updates for your networked HP business PCs. When SSM runs, it silently (without
user interaction) determines the revision levels of drivers and BIOS installed on each networked client
system and compares this inventory against system software SoftPaqs that have been tested and
stored in a central file store. SSM then automatically updates any down-revision system software on
the networked PCs to the later levels available in the file store. Since SSM only allows distribution of
6 Chapter 2 Software Updating and Management ENWW
Page: 12
SoftPaq updates to the correct client system models, administrators can confidently and efficiently
use SSM to keep system software updated.
System Software Manager integrates with enterprise software distribution tools such as HP Client
Automation solutions, HP Client Manager from Symantec, and Microsoft Systems Management
Server (SMS). Using SSM, customer-created or third-party updates that have been packaged in the
SSM-format can be distributed.
SSM may be downloaded at no charge by visiting http://www.hp.com/go/ssm.
NOTE: SSM does not currently support remote ROM flash on systems that have Windows
BitLocker Drive Encryption enabled and are using TPM measurements to protect the BitLocker keys
because flashing the BIOS would invalidate the Trust Signature that BitLocker created for the
platform. Disable BitLocker via Group Policy in order to flash the system BIOS.
Enable BitLocker support without TPM measurements of BIOS to avoid invalidating the BitLocker
keys. HP recommends you keep a secure backup of the BitLocker credentials in case of recovery
emergencies.
HP Proactive Change Notification
The Proactive Change Notification program uses the HP Subscriber's Choice Web site in order to
proactively and automatically:
● Send Proactive Change Notification (PCN) e-mail informing you of hardware and software
changes to most commercial computers and servers, up to 60 days in advance

4 ROM/BIOS
The computer's BIOS is stored in a programmable flash ROM (read only memory). By establishing a
setup password in the Computer Setup (F10) Utility, the ROM is protected from being unintentionally
updated or overwritten. This is important to ensure the operating integrity of the computer. To
upgrade the BIOS, download the latest BIOS images from the HP driver and support page,
http://www.hp.com/support/files.
CAUTION: For maximum ROM protection, be sure to establish a setup password. The setup
password prevents unauthorized ROM upgrades. HP System Software Manager allows the system
administrator to set the setup password on one or more PCs simultaneously. For more information,
visit http://www.hp.com/go/ssm.
Remote ROM Flash
Remote ROM Flash allows the system administrator to safely upgrade the BIOS on remote HP
computers directly from the centralized network management console, resulting in:
● Consistent deployment of, and greater control over, HP PC BIOS images over the network
● Greater productivity and lower total cost of ownership
NOTE: HP SSM does not currently support remote ROM flash on systems that have Windows
BitLocker Drive Encryption enabled and are using TPM measurements to protect the BitLocker keys
because flashing the BIOS would invalidate the Trust Signature that BitLocker created for the
platform. Disable BitLocker via Group Policy in order to flash the system BIOS.
The computer must be powered on, or turned on through Remote Wakeup, to take advantage of
Remote ROM Flash.
For more information on Remote ROM Flash, refer to the HP Client Manager Software or HP System
Software Manager at http://www.hp.com/go/ssm/.

14 Chapter 4 ROM/BIOS ENWW
Page: 20
5 Boot Block Emergency Recovery Mode
Boot Block Emergency Recovery Mode permits system recovery in the unlikely event of a ROM flash
failure. For example, if a power failure were to occur during a BIOS upgrade, the ROM flash would be
incomplete. This would render the system BIOS unusable. The Boot Block is a flash-protected section
of the ROM containing code that checks for a valid system BIOS image when the system is turned
on.
● If the system BIOS image is valid, the system starts normally.
● If the system BIOS image is not valid, a failsafe Boot Block BIOS provides enough support to
search removable media for BIOS image files. If an appropriate BIOS image file is found, it is
automatically flashed into the ROM.
To recover the system after it enters Boot Block Emergency Recovery Mode, complete the following
steps:
1. Turn off the power.
2. Insert a CD or USB flash device containing the desired BIOS image file in the root directory.
NOTE: The media must be formatted using the FAT16 or FAT32 file system.
3. Turn on the computer.
If no appropriate BIOS image is found, you will be prompted to insert media containing a BIOS
image file.
If the system successfully reprograms the ROM, the system will automatically power off.
4. Remove the removable media used to upgrade the BIOS.
5. Turn the power on to restart the computer.
NOTE: BitLocker prevents Windows Vista from booting when a CD containing the BIOS image file
is in an optical drive. If BitLocker is enabled, remove this CD before attempting to boot to Windows
Vista.

6 HP Web Site Support
HP engineers rigorously test and debug software developed by HP and third-party suppliers, and
develop operating system specific support software, to ensure performance, compatibility, and
reliability for HP computers.
When making the transition to new or revised operating systems, it is important to implement the
support software designed for that operating system. If you plan to run a version of Microsoft
Windows that is different from the version included with the computer, you must install corresponding
device drivers and utilities to ensure that all features are supported and functioning properly.
HP has made the task of locating, accessing, evaluating, and installing the latest support software
easier. You can download the software from http://www.hp.com/support.
The Web site contains the latest device drivers, utilities, and flashable ROM images needed to run
the latest Microsoft Windows operating system on the HP computer.
