1. Install the SCS Service on your Provisioning Server by running InstallSCS.bat. Both domain/WORKGROUP scenarios work. In order for the service to install correctly, you need to have a user that has administrative priviledges. That user also requires permission to log on as a service.
2. Go into your Domain Security Settings under Local Policies/ User Rights Assignment - then on the right hand side, find "Log on as a Service" -- add your SCS user here along with it's domain (
3. Run InstalSCS.bat
4. Verify that the Service did actually start by checking your services. (AMT Configuration Server)
Once the service is successfully started you can bring up the Console (on a non AMT system in the same network) and then you can also copy the Activator software over to your AMT system and run the Activator GUI from there. SCS Lite uses the ActivatorGUI to connect to the service and do the actual provisioning.
Note that the instructions in the Installation Guide are very clear (better than what I just wrote)- you should just follow them and it should work for you. On times it hasn't installed for me, I wasn't including the domain in the appropriate places or I didn't have an SCS User that had administrative priviledges.
