1. We are
using Win32_ComputerSystem class to get the Administrative
status ('AdminPasswordStatus' property), Power On Password status
property) and Keyboard Password status
property). However when we retrieve password status
class results are not consistent. It is not guaranteed that when
enabled the password status shall be returned as 'Enable'.
'Unknown', 'Not Supported' shall be returned as password status.
to let us know the reason behind this behavior.
2. Is there
any way available like WMI, Win32 API, etc. to retrieve HDD
status that is 'Enable' / 'Disable'.
us know the details of any of such available method.
3. Is it
possible that some BIOS might treat Administrative Password
for doing BIOS settings) as Power On password. And when Power On
enabled, value of 'AdminPasswordStatus' property from
class will change.
one plaese confirm this behavior.
on above issues are really helpful.
