BIOS Settings

You manage BIOS settings through the appliance. When you enable the Manage BIOS option, all appliance default settings are applied, in addition to whatever explicit overrides you specify.

By selecting to manage BIOS settings, you have the option to view all settings, only those you have modified, or only those that are different than the default values. The BIOS settings displayed depend on the supported server hardware.

Screen component


Manage BIOS

By default, BIOS settings are not managed through a server profile; however, selecting this check box enables you to do so on server hardware that supports these options.


When you are creating or editing a server profile template, the Manage BIOS check box is disabled if the appliance cannot manage these settings for the target server model (for example, when the server hardware type defines a ProLiant G7 server model). For a complete list of supported servers, see the HPE OneView Support Matrix.

  • If you keep the default setting and do not select the Manage BIOS check box, the server profile template will not contain any BIOS settings.

  • If you select the Manage BIOS check box, all BIOS settings are set to their appliance default settings. You can then edit or override these default settings through the server profile, based on the server hardware type associated with the profile.

HPE OneView has a set of default BIOS settings for the server hardware type. Click Edit settings to display the full set of BIOS settings, organized into categories. You can click any setting to view help text and select the desired value for the setting. Any changes to the default settings are displayed in the BIOS Settings panel.
