  • 6. Get/Set Operation of new tokens using CCTK CLI mode. UEFI Network Stack • UEFI Networking Stack helps in allowing pre-OS and early OS networking features to use enabled NICs . This option may be used without PXE turned on. • Current value of UEFI Network Stack can be checked by using below command of cctk. cctk --uefinwstack • To disable the UEFI n/w stack we can use the below command of cctk. cctk --uefinwstack=disable • To enable the UEFI n/w stack we can use the below command of cctk. cctk --uefinwstack=enable Dell - Internal Use - Confidential - Customer Workproduct
  • 7. OROM Keyboard Access • "OROM Keyboard Access" allows/prevent users from accessing the integrated Intel RAID (CTRL+I), MEBx( CTRL+P),and LSI RAID(CTRL+C) Orom during and MEBx in the Boot Menu. Other OROMs which support entry via a key sequence are not affected by this setting. • Current value of UEFI Network Stack can be checked by using below command of cctk. cctk --oromkeyboardaccess • To disable the oromkeboardaccess we can use the below command of cctk. cctk --oromkeyboardaccess=disable • To enable the oromkeboardaccess we can use the below command of cctk. cctk --oromkeyboardaccess=enable Dell - Internal Use - Confidential - Customer Workproduct
  • 8. Peak Shift and Peak shift Configuration: • To utilize the power consumption in a much efficient manner during peak hours of the day (i.e, when the power consumption is at the peak), peak shift helps to avoid power consumption from power supply. This enables electricity to be consumed at a more efficient way. It has three components which is mentioned below: – Peak Shift Start-->At this time, the system will stop using AC power and switch to use power from the battery – Peak Shift End -->At this time, the system will switch back to use AC power if it is available. • Note: Even if AC power is used again, charging is prevented until Peak Shift Start. – Peak Shift Charge Start-->At this time charging is restarted following a Peak Shift End.

  • 9. • To get the current Peakshift configuration we can execute below command of cctk. cctk --peakshiftcfg • To disable the Peakshift and Peakshiftcfg we can use the below command of cctk. cctk --peakshiftcfg=disable • To enable the Peakshift and Peakshiftcfg we can use the below command of cctk. cctk --peakshiftcfg=enable Dell - Internal Use - Confidential - Customer Workproduct
  • 10. • To configure the peakshiftcfg , peakshiftcfg should be enabled first and then we could able to configure peakshiftcfg for single day or multiple days. – We can configure the peakshiftcfg using below format: – – – – cctk --peakshiftcfg=enable,days-hh:mm/hh:mm/hh:mm Note: The input should be in format hh:mm<=hh:mm<=hh:mm i.e. Start time<=End time<=Charge start time Time should be in 24 hours format i.e. 0- 23 While entering hours and minutes field we have to give double digit number Ex: For input of 0 hrs. and 0 min we have to give input as 00:00 and min should be multiple of 15 i.e.15,30,45,00 • Ex: cctk --peakshiftcfg=enable,mon-05:00/08:00/11:00,tue06:30/09:30/12:00 Dell - Internal Use - Confidential - Customer Workproduct
  • 11. Peak shift Battery Threshold • This is a percentage-based number that follows the Windows reported battery life value .The goal of this setting is to try and ensure that Peak Shift does not turn off charging when the battery is in danger of running out of power. • If the Battery Threshold is reached, the system will switch to AC power ,even if the system has not yet reached Peakshift End. However , charging will not resume until Peak Shift Charge Start time is reached. – Note: Peak shift Battery threshold takes the value in the range between 15-100. • To set the value of Peak shift battery threshold we can use below command of cctk. cctk --peakshiftbatterythreshold=<15-100> Dell - Internal Use - Confidential - Customer Workproduct
  • 12. Onscreen Buttons: • All-in-one(AIO) systems contain On-Screen Display(OSD) buttons . These buttons are designed to match the functionality of standalone LCD panels and their associated OSD features. • To disable the Onscreen Buttons we can use the below command of cctk. cctk --onscreenbuttons=disable • To enable the Onscreen Buttons we can use the below command of cctk. cctk --onscreenbuttons=enable Dell - Internal Use - Confidential - Customer Workproduct
  • 13. Advanced Battery charging Mode and Advanced battery charge configuration: When Advanced Battery charging Mode enabled ,the interface allows user to input times weekly for "Beginning of Day" and "Work Period" for each of the seven days of the week. "Beginning of Day" corresponds to the time to begin the workday, and "Work Period” is a number of hours and minutes that the user will be working on the system. For EX: BOD:9:00 AM,WP:8:30 = Day starts at 9:00 AM and goes until 5:30PM BOD:10:00PM,WP:10:00 = Day starts at 10:00PM and goes until 8:00 AM • To get the current advanced battery configuration we can execute below command of cctk. cctk --advbatterychargecfg Dell - Internal Use - Confidential - Customer Workproduct
  • 14. • To disable the Advanced Battery charging Mode use the following cctk command: cctk --advbatterychargecfg=disable • To enable the Advanced Battery charging Mode use the following command: cctk --advbatterychargecfg=enable • To configure the advanced battery charge configuration , advbatterychargecfg should be enabled first and then we could able to configure advbatterychargecfg for single day or multiple days. To configure the advbatterychargecfg , use the command in format: cctk --advbatterychargecfg =enable,day-hh:mm/hh:mm – Note: Time should be in 24 hours format i.e. 0- 23 – While entering hours and min field we have to give double digit number. – Ex: For input of 0 hrs. and 0 min we have to give input as 00:00 and min should be multiple of 15 i.e 15,30,45,00.
