Polling Firmware Version from a HP Thunderbolt-Dockingstation G2 with Powershell

Hi,

I need to find out the Firmware Version installed on a HP Thunderbolt-Dockingstation G2 with Powershell command
On a HP_Docking_USB-C_G5, the Powershell call is:
Get-WmiObject -Class HP_DockAccessory -ComputerName $Computer -Namespace root/HP/InstrumentedServices/v1 | select -EXPAND FirmwarePackageVersion

That works fine, but on a HP Thunderbolt-Dockingstation G2, i can`t find out the Powershell call.
Does anyone know or know someone here advice?

HPDockWMIProvider.exe is installed on the Computer.

In the Technical white paper - HP Firmware Installer for Docks ,stand unfortunately nothing, as under G5.
https://ftp.ext.hp.com/pub/caps-softpaq/cmit/whitepapers/HP_Firmware_Installer_for_Docks_L33010-004.pdf

In the HP forum no one can help me either.

Thanks for a tip
Greetings

hi,

like said in the hpfi - hp firmware installer for docks, the wmi provider is only for:

  • HP USB-C Dock G5

  • HP USB-C/A Universal Dock G2

  • HP E24D G4 Docking Monitor

  • HP E27D G4 Docking Monitor

for the hp thunderbolt dock you must use another way to report firmware version. for the TB dock you can find several registry values at "Registry key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\HP\HP Firmware Installer\HP Thunderbolt Dock G2" like Available or Installed Package Version.
if you use SCCM there exists MOF file for reporting it here directly. please see hp firmware installer for docks guide for details.

hope this helps.
regards andré

I can't help directly but I wondered if you could try to see what classes are available on a device with one of those docks installs by using WmiExplorer to poke around and see if it provides a different class to query if HP_DockAccessory isn't available on the G2 - https://devblogs.microsoft.com/scripting/weekend-scripter-the-wmi-explorer-tool/

Hi DaveKwas,
I already use the WIMExplorer but from Kazlov, but the WIMExplorer from Pamnani, is a lot better, now i can find some entries.
but I think that I can not read the info from the WMI.
Pity.

Thanks DaveKwas
