Is there a way to provision the AMT via Powershell or Bios Update

Hello around.

 

I gotthe job to test VPro in an SCCM2007 R2 enviroment.

 

Unfortunatly i haven't worked with Vpro yet and find it a little confusing. Perhaps someone can show me the right path.

 

We have a PKI with client certificates running. At the moment we only need in-band managment. All clients are

 

managed via SCCM 2007 R2. I have found some videos showing how to filter the unprovisioned clients and provision them

 

via the Out-of-Band managment in SCCM. Question is how can i configure the AMT settings like Password, DNS, Hostname and so one

 

without touching every client. (We have 8000 at the moment)

 

Is there a way to change these settings with a Bios Update or a script?

I would be glad if someone could help me out.

Thank you

Tom

Hi Tombaer,

It may be easiest to just configure the machines using SCCM. Take a look at this technet article on SCCM Out of Band Management:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc161989.aspx http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc161989.aspx

Also, check out the Microsoft Manageability section on the vPro Expert Center:

/community/openportit/vproexpert/microsoft-vpro http://communities.intel.com/community/openportit/vproexpert/microsoft-vpro

And also the SCCM Specific Guides here:

/docs/DOC-1370 http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-1370

It is possible to configure via PowerShell, but it would be a somewhat complicated set of scripts that have to be executed.

To get started with the AMT vPro PowerShell Module:

/docs/DOC-4800 http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-4800

Hope this helps!
