WS-Translator is now live on the Manageability Developer Community


What is the WS-MAN Translator?

The Intel WS-Management Translator makes it possible for WS-Management based software to be used in conjunction with Intel AMT platforms older than version 3.0. Using the translator, management software can send WS-Management commands to the translator, the translator will in turn perform the equivalent operation on an Intel AMT device using a proprietary SOAP based protocol understood by all Intel AMT platforms.

SCS 3.0 and SDK 3.0 Info:

We have updated the Intel(SCS) release on the Manageability Community Site. Note that we have removed SCS version 1.2 and hope that everyone will begin using SCS 3.0 in it's place. You can check out my Blogs to find out more information on compatibility - such as APIs that were added/removed. (Please check this before migrating.)

Download the SCS 3.0 from here:

Patch 001for SCS 3.0
This patch is required only when the SCS is upgraded from Release 1.2 to Release 3.0 and if SCS Release 1.2 used a script to get new AMT properties. When the SCS is configured to use a script to get new Intel AMT properties, this patch updates the timeout value used by the SCS when it waits for the script to complete.

Download Patch 001 for Intel SCS release 3.0. Please read the Release Notes before downloading the patch for the installation instructions.

Purpose of the Patch:
The patch corrects a value in the SCS database. When the SCS is configured to use a script to get new Intel AMT properties (see the General page of the SCS console), this patch updates the timeout value used by the SCS when it waits for the script to complete.

When is this Patch needed:
The patch is required when the SCS was upgraded from Release 1.2 to Release 3.0, and SCS Release 1.2 used a script to get new AMT properties.

SDK 3.0 Info:

Just thought I'd alert our Forum viewers that the new SDK is now available for download on the Manageabilitywebsite:

And, of course I have written a blog that describes what features are associated with which versions of Intel AMT along with what is new inside the 3. 0 SDK:
