Will AMT panic if touch too often

Hi,

I am working on integrate AMT with OpenStack.

Will validate the amt address and password several times during process.

But there is a problem with BMC, it is too fragile and will panic if we touch it too often.

So do we have a similar issue with AMT?

Thanks

Could you explain more?  There's a difference between reading from the firmware and writing to it. The more you write to something, the greater risk you have of corrupting it. Is that what you are asking?

What if I just reading from the firmware?

To test if I can connect to vPro

Just reading the firmware should not risk corruption unless somehow you managed to get the SPI chip extremely hot (very unlikely)
