USB Provisioning

Hi Experts,

Please recommend best solution for Intel vPro USB Provisioning in corporate environment.

-actual certificate from Godaddy

-Intel SCS 8.2 is used with AD Integration

-AMT versions 5/6/7/8

-Windows 7 joined to domain configured with ACUconfig.exe via GPO(they configured perfectly and visible on SCS console).

But also we have non-domain Windows and Linux PC's, so we need use USB Provisioning.

I didnt find clear instructions how to create correct/applicable setup.bin for USB provisioning(and how to make that PC's configured with setup.bin become visible on SCS Console

I have tried use SCS -> Tools -> Prepare USB Key for Manual Conf... on AMT 7.x machine, but unsuccessfully, machine wasnt appeared on SCS Console.

What is best utility may I use for my purpose ACUconfig.exe(with /ConfigviaUSB) or USBfile.exe(from latest SDK package)?

Please give few examples and write, if additional configuring of SCS server is needed.

Thank you.

adovb,

You don't need to change anything with your SCS setup. Configuring systems with USB Provisioning doesn't automatically add them to your SCS database. To add these systems that have already been configured but are not in the SCS database, use ACUConfig [NotifyRCS].

The best tool to use for USB Provisioning depends on the AMT version.

For AMT 5 and lower use USBFile.exe from the SDK.

/docs/DOC-4354 http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-4354

For AMT 6 and higher use ACUConfig.exe with the ConfigViaUSB.

Alan,

Thank you for response.

As I understood, USB provisioning doesnt add target system to Intel SCS Console?

When usb stick configuring completed, host OS must be loaded and command ACUconfig.exe /NotifyRCS... should be executed?

How to do that for Linux machines, could you provide any examples and pre-requirements for Linux OS.

Hi,

and one simple question.

Is it possible to make usb provisioning(without boot to OS) that the AMT system appeared on SCS console after that?

adovb,

It is possible to add ACUConfig into a WinPE image, allowing you to run ACUConfig from the preinstallation environment.

There is a post about it here: /thread/28789 http://communities.intel.com/thread/28789

 

The Linux version of ACUConfig doesn't support the NotifyRCS command. So for those computers you will need to run ACUConfig from WinPE as well.
