I see you list 4.1.11 as the FW of the platform, This FW is relatively old and a number of OEM's have more recent FW versions. since I am not aware of the specific platform you have used I have some general suggestions that may help resolve your issue.

First, please update to the latest FW your OEM has available - over time AMT has worked thru a variety of unique issues that resolved authentication failurers, the FW kit that is posted on the OEM site should have the release notes and specific fixes that are included in that kit. Please review these notes and if you see an issue that resembles your problem, I strongly recommend you update the FW (note some OEM's require updating the BIOS also, I tend to do both when i find they are both newer that your current versions).

While I know your in an enterprise mode and have a Certificate of Authority I would also recommend using the certificate checker tool found here in the vPro expert center. I will follow up with a link to the tool set that will help in identiying your issue.

last suggestion is based on your permisisons for provisioning, the AD credential needs to have admin priviliges so if you are logged into the client with non provisioning admin credentials you will not be successful in provisioning, even if you ahve admin rights to the platform. As long as your certificate is valid I would recommend using the remote activation tool for all your provisioning, activator.exe is the recommended method for starting remote provisioning.

here is the tool set I mentioned - please review the SCS setup wizard tool and the certificate validation tool along with the other capabilities to help you provision and manage your platform - /docs/DOC-1171 http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-1171
