How to prevent BIOS (RBSU) reset to default ?

Good find schoondoggy. Also interesting that NTP is part of the answer.

Thanks for the research. It is already my setup, that is why I wrote " I have already found the user default setting, which helps a bit". I still treats it as a workaround, so that is why I'm wondering if there is a way to protect the BIOS. If it's not, then I have to stay with the workaround.

I'm not sure I would call it a workaround. Everything seems to be protected except Date & Time, and those really should be handled by NTP anyway.

Schoondoggy, no need to say sorry, really appreciate your contributions!

 

IF (!) there was an 'official' way to protect the Gen8's BIOS, I'm convinced you, or other HSS cracks, would have known.

 

So it looks like I do not have to hunt anymore for an 'official' BIOS protection, and have to accept the workaround.

Some systems have a jumper setting to make the BIOS read only.

I sent an email question to HP pre-sales to see if there is a provision on the MicroServer for locking the BIOS.

I did not, but I should follow up with them.

Let me see if I can find any more detail.

Thanks. Just doesn't seem to be a real fix for this issue even though it affects lots of people/devices!
