Description

The Set-TpmOwnerAuth cmdlet changes the current owner authorization value of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to a new value. You can specify the current owner authorization value or specify a file that contains the current owner authorization value. If you do not specify an owner authorization value, the cmdlet attempts to read the value from the registry.

Use the ConvertTo-TpmOwnerAuth cmdlet to create an owner authorization value. You can specify a new owner authorization value or specify a file that contains the new value.

An owner authorization file is not a simply a password. It is generated for a specific system. For more information on TPM, see the Trusted Platform Module Technology Overview in the Technet library.

Examples

Example 1: Replace imported owner authorization value

PS C:\> Set-TpmOwnerAuth -NewOwnerAuthorization "h4FCmNeWVNp5IMHxRfFL9QEq4vM="
TpmReady           : True
TpmPresent         : True
ManagedAuthLevel   : Full
OwnerAuth          : h4FCmNeWVNp5IMHxRfFL9QEq4vM=
OwnerClearDisabled : True
AutoProvisioning   : DisabledForNextBoot
LockedOut          : False
SelfTest           : {191, 191, 245, 191...}

This command replaces the current owner authorization value with the specified owner authorization value. The command does not specify the current owner authorization value, so the cmdlet attempts to find it in the registry. This command does not import the owner authorization value into the registry. After you run this command, you can use the Import-TpmOwnerAuth cmdlet to import the new value into the registry, if necessary.

Example 2: Replace owner authorization value with value in file

PS C:\> Set-TpmOwnerAuth -NewFile "NewOwnerAuth.tpm"
TpmReady           : True
TpmPresent         : True
ManagedAuthLevel   : Full
OwnerAuth          : h4FCmNeWVNp5IMHxRfFL9QEq4vM=
OwnerClearDisabled : True
AutoProvisioning   : DisabledForNextBoot
LockedOut          : False
SelfTest           : {191, 191, 245, 191...}

This command replaces the current owner authorization value with the owner authorization value in the specified file.

Example 3: Replace owner authorization value

PS C:\> Set-TpmOwnerAuth -OwnerAuthorization "oaVq17hNcFS2KSnHwpZa4AlrWBo=" -NewOwnerAuthorization "h4FCmNeWVNp5IMHxRfFL9QEq4vM="
TpmReady           : True
TpmPresent         : True
ManagedAuthLevel   : Full
OwnerAuth          : h4FCmNeWVNp5IMHxRfFL9QEq4vM=
OwnerClearDisabled : True
AutoProvisioning   : DisabledForNextBoot
LockedOut          : False
SelfTest           : {191, 191, 245, 191...}

This command replaces the specified owner authorization value with a new owner authorization value.

Outputs

TpmObject

This cmdlet returns a TpmObject object contains the following information:

  • TpmReady. Whether a TPM complies with Windows ServerĀ® 2012 standards.
  • TpmPresent. Whether there is a TMP on the current computer.
  • ManagedAuthLevel. The level at which the operating system manages the owner authorization. Possible values are Legacy, Balanced, and Full.
  • OwnerClearDisabled. Whether TPM can be reset. If this value is True, the TPM cannot be reset through the operating system by using the owner authorization value. If this value is False, the TPM can be reset through the operating system.
  • AutoProvisioning. Whether the computer can use auto-provisioning. Possible values are NotDefined, Enabled, Disabled, and DisabledForNextBoot.
  • LockedOut. Whether a TPM is locked out.
  • SelfTest. Information returned by a test that TPM runs.
