Intel Vpro / deployment with MDT 2013

Hello,

My company is providing training for customers. I do need to deploy remotely (on a different site) via MDT 2013, freshly made installation 3 times a week.

 

Can Vpro (KVM features via AMT) provides me a remote access on computer and allows me to boot on a PXE provided by MDT (configured via DHCP) and allows me to access via KVM during the whole process ?

 

Thanks for your time

Hello omarq3,

 

Thank you for joining the community.

 

When you say MDT 2013 do you refer to the Microsoft Deployment Tool 2013?

 

About the AMT capabilities you are correct, when the remote system is correctly provisioned (setup) it will allow you to remote into the system, perform power on/power off operations, see the POST on the screen (thus been able to see the PXE boot process) exactly the same as if you where in front of the system. Of course the PXE server should be in the same subnet where this system is trying to PXE boot.

Hello Jose !

 

first of all thanks for your answers, I'll read carefully the documentation you provided to me.

 

Quickly, as far as my concern is to deploy new OS every 2 days, looks like that AMT / KVM features is completly independent from the OS, can you confirm this ?

Hello omarq3,

 

You are correct, all the AMT features are OS independent. When remotely connected through AMT you can even power on the system in case is turned off and access BIOS. It's primary purpose is for remote troubleshooting and management but it could perfectly suit what you want to accomplish.

 

Let me know if you have further questions.

Hello !

 

We found out that AMT is capable of what we want to do, we ordered an intel Vpro DELL PC to test the whole solution so yes, we are done for now.

 

Thanks a lot for your time,

 

Have a good one !
