A client certificate for connecting with AMT could not be found



I've been working on remotely activating vPro on about 50 systems recently purchased from Dell. I've purchased and installed a GoDaddy certificate that matches the server name where the SCS console/service is installed. I've verified with GoDaddy that the certificate is provisioned for vPro, and that the certificate is installed in the Personal cert store for the user running the Intel SCS service. Here's the event log:

Date and time: 8/8/2010 6:00:33 PM


Operation: Configuration


Status: Failed




Server name: server.domain.local


User name: PSI\intrinium


System UUID: 4C4C4544-0036-4C10-805A-B4C04F444E31


System FQDN: workstation.domain.local


Description: Initial connection to Intel (R) AMT failed. Failed while calling Soap call GetCoreVersion. AMT Connection Error 4037: The SSL handshake failed: A client certificate for connecting with AMT could not be found, error in discover 4037

Here's my command:


\\domain.local\DFSData\Software\AMTActivator\Activator.exe /destination server.domain.local /ADOU AMT_Devices /output console

Any ideas on why this error is being logged? The certificate CN exactly matches the destination server name above.
