We like the idea of using AMT for our testlab, especially being able to reset the machines remotely if they "hang" (for any reason). We need remote wake-up too, because some machines are switched off sometimes. We do not need remote inventory or amt-virus protection.
We are currently using hp7800, hp7900 and hp8000, all convertible minitowers.
Now, my questions:
1. Is it true that AMT cannot coexist with classic wake-on-lan (broadcasting the mac-adress or the like)?
2. What is the best configuration amt-wise?
3. What is the best way to configure? In the past, every machine was configured by hand. We do not budget for management software like Microsoft Systemcenter, but we can setup a special dhcp-server ot tftp-server for configuration purposes. We do not have a public-key infratructure.
Thanks & Bye
The wake-on-lan is acutally a requirement for AMT, so yes it works fine with AMT.
I would recommend checking the documentation of the AMT on the following link:
This manual instructs you how to configure the AMT at your best needs.
