This isa question received by Intel Software Network Support, along with an answer supplied by the Intel AMT Add-on for Microsoft* SMS support team:
Q. Does Intel AMT add-in for SMS require specific version of SQL Server? I have found a document saying it supports from SMS 2003 SP1 but also saying SQL 2005. SMS 2003 supports SQL 2005 from SP2. I want to know if Intel vPro would work on SQL 2000. If not, what are the reasons?
A. Intel AMT add-on for Microsoft SMS 2003 does not use SQL directly.
The add-on was tested with SQL 2000 SP4 and SQL 2005 and both are supported.
