What OS is your AMT client running?
You cant access the web ui, locally- you have to do it from a remote system.
Prior to AMT 6.2 local access was restricted to a few usages.
Storage is one of the usages that provides some local access in systems prior to AMT 6.2 , and in those versions it needs to be remotely setup before it can be used locally.
Storage is probably the most complicated flow to use in AMT.
Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, I think you have a few choices.
Since your system is already a 6.x generation you may want to upgrade to 6.2 to have the local interface opened up. You can check the HP website to see if the upgrade is available.
Also, in any event you will need to find software that can do what you need. If the DTK doesnt work for you then you may want to consider using the AMT SDK samples or PowerShell scripting.
Ive been using the AMT SDK samples to try to understand storage. I didnt know that the storage interface access is more available locally in the newer versions.
Is there a programming interface for the LMS/HECI drivers (my system reports a Management Engine Interface driver; the HP site for this laptop shows updates only to 6.0.31)?
It is unfortunate that HP does not provide the latest update for AMT. We rarely get all OEMs to take an update.
And I was a bit off on the version for expanding local access to AMT features, it is actually 6.1.
You can use the same AMT API locally as you do remotely and dont need to do any special HECI programming. The LMS provides the API. Take a look at this SDK documentation for more about Local Access:
Here is a list of the AMT functionality with indication for local or remote access:
