Hi all,

I've trying to explore the vPro capabilities by settingup a lab environment with LANDesk Management Suite 8.8. Am trying to do zero-touch provisioning of the AMT 3.x systems i have in my test environment(Model: Dell Optiplex 755) Am aware that i will need any one of the following certificates VeriSign G1, VeriSign G3, GoDaddy, Comodo, Starfield.

I googled to to find that COMODO offers SSL certs for free.(Source: http://www.instantssl.com/ssl-certificate-products/free-ssl-certificate.html)

Will this cert work if i use it for AMT provisoning...????

As it a test environment, i can't afford to buy a verisign certificate(600$).

Any help regarding this would be great..

Thanx

Yes, you should be able to obtain a valid cert from Comodo via the website you specified.

My suggestion would be to go for a GoDaddy Premium SSL certificate. Its alot cheaper, and the application process is quicker. I've already spoken to them regarding vPro provisioning certificates, and they know what they're doing.

The free certificates will not work for vPro provisioning, you need to specify a custom OU value of Intel(R) Client Setup Certificate in your CSR, and the free certs dont allow this.
