1) For systems already out there, is there a registry key or something I can check to confirm if SOL & HECI pieces already are there?
2) I get an error in my SCCM log that says:
MT Discovery Worker: CSMSAMTDiscoveryWorker::RetrieveInfoFromResource - Found machine MYWORKSTATION (MYWORKSTATION.mydomain.org),
ID: 4016 - 22.214.171.124 from Resource GUID:7E462349-F029-4F9D-B358-47E3B08806B7.
Error: Translator regestry key has not been found. Please ensure it being installed. (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Intel\\WsMan Translator)
Found new provision server certificate with hash 6EF138015CCA5902DBE1E437801AC42704B425DF.
Okay, I thought WS-MAN only is needed *ONLY IF* we have (or care about) AMT V3.x and below?
If we don't (have or care), then why do I get these entries about the WSMan Translator?
I mean, if I don't have any systems less than AMT 5.x... ?
3) Which Dell machines, for example, have 'which version' of AMT? Is there a chart somewhere?
Looks like Optiplex 755 and 760 above have v5.x and 780 & 790 have 6.x.
How do we know (without going and booting each BIOS) what version is on Vostro 200, 400, Optiplex 330, and Dimension 5150?
4) I have sccm 2007 R3, so how would a "bare metal" discovery work? I have the GoDaddy provisioning cert in place, but if the machine is just "placed on the wire," how do I recognize it, if it has not yet been given any IP address? My understanding is that I don't necessarily need to physically 'touch' the machine - there is some way to get SCCM to "automatically provision it." ?
Bare metal provisioning is not supported on Intel AMT 6.0 and later systems. These systems will not start sending out hello packets when you first connect them to the power and network. By default, the timer that controls how long the system will send out the hello packets after it is plugged in has been set to 0 so it will timeout as soon as it is plugged in.
To do remote configuration on these systems, use Activator or an ISV client agent (for example on Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager). You can also use the Configurator in Intel SCS 7 to initiate remote configuration on Intel AMT 6 systems. The Intel tools are available on the Tools page in the Intel vPro Expert Center. For information on Microsoft, LANDesk, Symantec, and other ISVs, please check out the home page for the respective software.===================
