Can You Help Simplify vPro?

Hello Intel vPro experts!

I remember seeing vPro live when Intel used to do Technical Solutions Trainings (TST) on the road

That was 4/5 years ago on the 3rd generation NUC!

Being able to remote to a computer at a BIOS level is a huge asset to an IT guy

I want to do vPro on the 7th generation NUC

Obviously, I need a NUC with vPro

QUESTION is, what else do I need?

If I want to access NUCs on the LAN, do I just need an AMT server?

What if I want to access NUCs remotely without VPN to the network?

I see demos using Labtech RMM, but thats like 4 years old

I greatly appreciate the help...

Hi Jered,

 

 

Here is a link for NUC's with vPro technology:

 

https://www.intel.com/buy/us/en/catalog/components/nuc/intel-vpro-technology

 

 

For your other questions:

QUESTION is, what else do I need?

 

I think the best reference I can provide you would be the deployment and user guides, located here:

 

User Guide:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/software/Intel_SCS_User_Guide.pdf

 

Deployment Guide:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000020917/software/manageability-products.h...

 

 

Also, take a look at the video posted here for a simple lab deployment of AMT:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000026592/technologies.html

 

If I want to access NUCs on the LAN, do I just need an AMT server?

 

There is no requirement for the server to be AMT.

What if I want to access NUCs remotely without VPN to the network?

 

I don't quite understand this question...do you mean the NUC's are within your domain and no requirement for VPN? Or do you mean the NUC's are outside of your network AND you would need VPN to connect to them with inband remote utilities like Remote Desktop?

Planning on NUC7i5DKNE

What if I want to access NUCs remotely without VPN to the network?

I don't quite understand this question...do you mean the NUC's are within your domain and no requirement for VPN? Or do you mean the NUC's are outside of your network AND you would need VPN to connect to them with inband remote utilities like Remote Desktop?

--The NUC's would be outside the network where I am and I want to vPro to them

--If you know how logmein, gotomypc works, I envision it like that

--Say I'm in Dallas

--The office is in Chicago

--Office has 20 NUCs with vPro

--I want to remote to one of these NUCs and do remote KVM at the BIOS level because it won't boot to windows

Appreciate the help...

Hi Jared,

 

 

Okay, so for the scenario you've posed, you're in Dallas (say Dallas.com is the domain and you have full access to it). You have 20 NUC's in Chicago (for example, Chicago.com).

 

 

AMT aside, do you have the ability to remote desktop into a system at chicago.com?

 

Are the 20 NUC's already at that location or will be shipped there?

 

If the 20 NUC's are already at that location, is there anyone on-site that could activate AMT via MEBx?

 

 

Regards,

 

Michael
