Running vPro OOB Mgt without SCCM



I have been having problems with getting the Out of Band Management Console to run because my normal login account is too large to work with all of our AMT devices. The Kerberos token size is the problem. The problem I have encountered is I have to logoff and login using a small test account when I want to use OOBMC. This prevents me from doing anyhting elase.

I created a commandline script that will run the OOBMC as a runas user to avoid the logoff's.

et 2 variables at the top and its ready to go.

You need to have the SCCM console installed on the computer as it uses oobconsole.exe to run "outside of the box".

It does a WMI query to the SCCM server to find the resource ID for the specific PC then does a runas on the oobconsole.exe
