Hello, I will attempt to answer your questions - please let us know if this helps or not:
a: You can redirect to a floppy drive, to a CD drive, or to an image file. (Currently, not to a USB drive or to another hard disk) Note that IDER does not support DVD format.
b: I'm not sure what is meant by remote vs local. Redirection enables a Management Console to attach one of it's floppy orCD drives to a managed client (your AMT system) over the network. Once the session is established, the AMT system can use the IDE device as if it were directly attached to one of its own IDE channels.
c: The Management Console (performing IDE-redirection) is typically not AMT capable; however an AMT capable machine certainly could operate as a management console.
d: Yes. If the AMT system is setup in Small Business mode you can access the AMT client by going to the following url: http://
AMT firmwaredoes theredirection and responds to the commands from management consoles. When you are provisioning the AMT system, you have to enable the redirection. Let us know if you have further questions.
