Dell Command | Configure options
3
This chapter provides an overview of the Dell Command | Configure options. It describes the general and
BIOS options to configure settings for the client systems.
Dell Command | Configure options can be divided into:
•
General options — Applicable to all systems.
•
BIOS options — Applicable only if the BIOS of the system supports.
NOTE: If you are running Dell Command | Configure commands on systems running Windows Vista
or later, run the commands with the administrator rights. Running the command displays a pop-up
window where you can enter the administrator ID and password.
NOTE: If you run Dell Command | Configure commands on systems running Windows Vista or later
without administrator rights, the following error message is displayed: 'admin/root'
privileges required to execute this application.
General options
The following are the general options of Dell Command | Configure .
NOTE: Some of the options in Dell Command | Configure are followed by an asterisk. These options
do not accept any suboptions or arguments. The values associated with these options are reported
by the Basic Input Output System (BIOS). You cannot modify these values.
-h or --help
Valid Argument
none or <valid option name>
Description
Without an argument, this option displays general usage information for the
utility. If the argument matches a valid option, the usage information of the
option is displayed. If the option has arguments, the arguments are displayed,
separated by a | character. If the argument is supported on the system, a +
symbol is displayed with the argument. If the option has suboptions, all
suboptions, valid arguments, and a description are listed. If the argument does
not match a valid option, a usage error is given (and usage information is
displayed).
19
Example
C:\>cctk -h asfmode
asfmode: Sets the asf (alert standard format)mode. DASH
and ASF 2.0 set enables LOM to have DASH and ASF 2.0
functionality.
Arguments: off+ | on+ | alertonly+
-i or --infile
Valid Argument
<filename>
Description
Directs the Command Configure utility to take input from an INI file. The
utility searches the file for a Command Configure heading identical to the
utility name. An error is returned if the file or section is not found. If the
section is found, each name/value pair is applied to the system. The names
must match a valid option, and the arguments must be in the proper format
for the option. If an option is not available on a system and it is specified in a
file, the utility ignores the option. If any errors are found in the format of the
names or values, that option is skipped. The remaining options are applied to
the system.
If this option is used with other function command options, they are applied
in the order in which they appear on the command line, overriding any
previous commands.
In the INI file, bootorder is displayed as a list of devices with their short forms
in the order they are assigned separated by commas.
For example:
bootorder=legacytype,+pcmcia,+hdd.1,-floppy,+cdrom,hdd.2,+nic.1,-hdd.3,+nic.2
A plus (+) symbol with the device name indicates that the device is enabled
and a minus (-) symbol indicates that the device is disabled. You can enable or
disable the devices by changing the symbol displayed with the device short
name. These symbols are optional and if not present, the current status of the
device is retained.
NOTE: If the operating system is booted in the Unified Extensible
Firmware Interface (UEFI) mode, then the bootorder type is shown as
UEFI type.
Change the boot order by changing the order of the list. You can also enter
the device number instead of the device name.
NOTE: The bootorder option in the INI file is applied to a system based
on its active boot list. If the INI file is generated from a system with the
active boot list set as UEFI, and it is applied on a system with the active
boot list set as Legacy, the boot order is set only on devices that are
available in the system. It is recommended that you apply the INI file on a
system with the same active boot list as of the system from where the INI
file is generated.
Example
20
C:\>cctk -i <c:cctk>/filename.ini
-l or --logfile
Valid Argument
<filename>
Description
Logs the command line output to a time-stamped file. The utility either
appends the information to an existing log file or creates a new file. The log
file contains the same information as the standard output, plus timestamp
information. Users should use this option instead of redirection for task
diagnosis.
Example
C:\>cctk -l <c:/cctk>/logfile
No option
Valid Argument
NA
Description
If an option is not given, the Dell Command | Configure utility outputs usage
information. The usage information is displayed in the format shown below.
Example
C:\>cctk
Usage error.
cctk Version 3.1.0 258 (Windows - Feb 25 2015,14:38:43)
Copyright (c) 2014 Dell Inc.
Usage: cctk --option[=argument]
For more information about a particular command, use the
option '-h' followed by the command name.
Example: cctk -h --asset
-o or --outfile
Valid Argument
<filename>
Description
Writes all BIOS options, that you can replicate to the BIOS of another system,
to the specified filename. The file name you specify should have INI extension
and should be created in the default installation directory. The format of the
output is in an INI format, with the utility name as the section header. If a file
with the same name already exists, the information is appended to the file. If
this option is used with other function commands, the commands are applied
in the order in which they appear. This option captures replicable BIOS
options. The file is created in the directory where you run the Dell Command |
Configure command.
In the INI file, bootorder is displayed as a list of comma separated device
short forms in the order they are assigned. A plus (+) symbol with the device
name indicates that the device is enabled and a minus (-) symbol indicates
that the device is disabled. You can change the boot order by changing the
order of the list. You can also enter the device number instead of the device
name.
You can enable or disable the devices by changing the symbol displayed with
the device. These symbols are optional and if not present, the current status
of the device is retained.
21
NOTE: The bootorder option in the INI file is applied to a system based
on its active boot list. If the INI file is generated from a system with the
active boot list set as UEFI, and it is applied on a system with the active
boot list set as legacy, the boot order is set only on devices that are
available in the system. It is recommended that you apply the INI file on a
system with the same active boot list as of the system from where the INI
file is generated.

system runs on battery if the battery charge is above the set battery threshold
value. After the Peak Shift period, the system runs on AC power without
charging the battery. The system functions normally using AC power and
recharging the battery after the specified Charge Start Time.
NOTE: To use peakshiftcfg, set the values of Operate only on
battery, Operate only on AC, and Resume normal power/
charge are necessary. The values must be set in such a way that Peak
shift start time <= Peak shift end time <= Peak shift charge start time.

Advanced System Management
Advanced System Management (ASM) is a feature supported on Dell Precision R7610, T5810 ,T7810,
T7910 and later workstations. The feature displays information about voltage, temperature, current,
cooling device, and power supply probes. The feature also allows you to set the non-critical upper
threshold values of voltage, current, cooling, and temperature probes.
ASM probes and options
ASM allows to display the details from the available probes. The following table lists the probes and the
corresponding options for displaying the probe details.

Displaying the probe details
You can display the details of power supply, voltage, current, temperature, and cooling device probes.
To display the probe details, type:
cctk advsm --report=<option>
NOTE: Here, option represents v, c, t, p, f, or all.
For example, to display the details of voltage probe, type:
cctk advsm --report=v
To display the details of all the available probes, type:
cctk advsm --report=all
Setting the non-critical threshold values
You can set the non-critical threshold values for voltage, current, cooling and temperature probes.
To set the non-critical threshold values for a probe, type:
cctk advsm --set=<cctk option name>:<upper non critical threshold value>
NOTE: Here, cctk option name is the component for which you want to set the non-critical
threshold values in a probe. You can obtain the cctk option name for a probe using the report
command.
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a voltage probe, type:
cctk advsm --set=voltage_1:10
For example, to set only the upper non-critical threshold value for a current probe, type:
cctk advsm --set=current_1:100
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a cooling probe, type:
cctk advsm --set=cd_1:10
For example, to set only the upper non-critical threshold value for a temperature probe, type:
cctk advsm --set=temperature_1:100
106
If the system has a setup password, while setting the non-critical threshold values specify the setup
password and set the non-critical threshold values as:
cctk advsm --set=<option name>:<upper non critical threshold value> -valsetuppwd= <setup password>
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a voltage probe on a system with a setup
password, type:
cctk advsm --set=voltage_1:55 --valsetuppwd = <setup password>
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a current probe on a system with a setup
password, type:
cctk advsm --set=current_1:55 --valsetuppwd = <setup password>
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a cooling probe on a system with a setup
password, type:
cctk advsm --set=cd_1:55 --valsetuppwd = <setup password>
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a temperature probe on a system with a setup
password, type:
cctk advsm --set=temperature_1:55 --valsetuppwd = <setup password>
If the system has a system password and no setup password, while setting the non-critical threshold
values specify the system password and set the non-critical threshold values as:
cctk advsm --set=<cctk option name>:<upper non critical threshold value> -valsyspwd= <system password>
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a voltage probe on a system with a system
password and no setup password, type:
cctk advsm --set=voltage_1:10 --valsyspwd = <system password>
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a current probe on a system with a system
password and no setup password, type:
cctk advsm --set=current_1:10 --valsyspwd = <system password>
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a cooling probe on a system with a system
password and no setup password, type:
cctk advsm --set=cd_1:10 --valsyspwd = <system password>
For example, to set the non-critical threshold values for a temperature probe on a system with a system
password and no setup password, type:
cctk advsm --set=temperature_1:10 --valsyspwd = <system password>
PCI reporting
The scan of the PCI bus will use a file to resolve PCI vendor and device codes to vendor information
strings. The format of the PCI output is as follows:
PCI Bus: 2, Device: 4, Function: 0
Vendor: 8086 - Intel Corp.
Device: 1229 - 82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100]
Sub Vendor:8086 - Intel Corp.
107
Sub Device:1017 - EtherExpress PRO/100+ Dual Port Server Adapter
Slot: 01
Class: 02 - Network
SubClass: 00 - Ethernet
If the file for vendor resolution is not present, the utility will print Unknown next to a vendor name. If the
file for environment variable names is not present, the utility will fail the environment variable operation.
The pci.ids file is located at :
•
Systems running on supported Windows operating system:
– For 32-bit systems; C:\Program Files\Dell\Command Configure\X86
– For 64-bit systems; C:\Program Files\Dell\Command Configure\X86_64
