I am wondering for what purpose we need to configure hostname and domain name in MEBx configuration? Just for test I leave it blank and I can connect to such machine via vPro using FQDN. So I assume that DNS lookup is performed
You will need this when not working with DHCP and need to work at SMB mode. When you have dhcp, it will work using fqdn without problens.
And if DHCP is enabled, the ME will share the Host IP address when the host OS is running.
