Q: Intel SCS Exception: Cannot contact back AMT with IP:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx Exception - Possible Reasons? - 06/18/07
A: Check the following possibilities:
- The current password of the security key entered to the MEBx doesn't match the MEBx password (most common reason).
- Duplicate DNS registration (two host names bind the same ip)
- The SCS profile TLS PSK is configured to be plain text; the AMT machine doesn't support this.
- Or.... is there a security program running on the AMT system that might be blocking communication (also check the Firewall.... :-) )
