I have two machines - machineA and machineB running Ubuntu 12.04

Is there any easy way I can compare BIOS settings between those two machine and see the difference instead of doing it manually using dmidecode and then comparing it which is very tedious?

I mean, can we run a shell script which gets the BIOS information from machineA and machineB and then compare both of them and tell me which component it differs and what exactly is the difference?

  • @casey I already know dmidecode. Question was to use dmidecode with shell script in such a way so that you dont need to do it manually, shell script can do the comparison for you and print the difference out. If I do it manually, it is very tedious and by manually I meant, use dmidecode and then compare it on paper. – david May 30 '15 at 23:22
