Configuring Dell Command Warranty Utility for SCCM

This post shows the steps for configuring Dell command warranty utility for SCCM. In my previous post we saw installation of Dell command integration suite for SCCM. When you install DCIS, one of the component that’s installed is Dell command warranty utility. However you can install it as a standalone application as well. The DCIS tool is available for download here. Dell command warranty utility allows you to fetch the warranty information of Dell systems. The warranty information is stored in configuration manager database or a file.

So with this tool installed you can retrieve the warranty information about your Dell systems using SCCM. This tool scans your SCCM SQL database for Dell machines and their asset tags. Furthermore the information is checked against its own warranty database for the warranty information. It then inserts all the warranty information into a new table in your SCCM SQL database. You will find the table is created with name DellWarrantyInformation. Finally this information stored in the table can be seen using reports.

Hi… I am doing it through PowerShell script, deploying new Dell API. However, changing the name of the Warranty class as well, so will the DellWarrantyInformation class fetch the data from the new Warranty class created?

I have an API key. I’m using it with a right-click warranty tool. How do I use it with this warranty utility?

Hi Prajwal,

We have multiple instances on our SQL Server. When entering the database name/server where would I enter the instance?



Does this tool store the information in a table in SCCM? If so what table does it use?
