I understand what that means - the AMT returned a response that something happened, although that something was a failure, but I'd like to find out why.
Full log details here:

Also, what's the best place to start with all this AMT stuff? I'm reading through the Intel Setup and Configuration Software Deployment Guide and it seems to be a decent starting place, but some of the stuff is different, like the export XML file HAVING to be encrypted now (documentation shows it as a check box where you can select encryption if you'd like).
Thanks, new to all this AMT stuff, but it sure seems neat.
You should be able to fix that error by doing a full unconfigure with ACUConfig.
Acuconfig.exe Unconfigure /Full /AdminPassword yourpassword

Also, you're right about the section for exporting XML files in the Intel Setup and Configuration Software Deployment Guide. This section needs to be updated.
