Intel® Active Management Technology: Downloads
Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) is a set of firmware-resident hardware capabilities that enable network-management applications to perform sophisticated remote functions, even when the target device is powered off or has a corrupted operating system (OS). Because this technology helps to safeguard system administrators' ability to manage systems remotely and minimize costly desk-side visits, Intel AMT represents a substantial advantage to customers. Because the means for customers to implement this technology relies on software implementations, Intel makes a powerful set of tools available to software makers, helping to facilitate the integration of Intel AMT into network-manageability applications.
These are all tools that can be used when experimenting with or writing applications for Intel® AMT. Here are some brief descriptions and when to use them:
Intel AMT Software Development Kit (SDK): Provides the low-level programming capabilities to enable developers to build manageability applications that take full advantage of Intel AMT. Provides sample code and all the Application Programming Interface (APIs) needed for implementing Intel® AMT. Both the Intel AMT RDK and the DTK use the APIs provided in the SDK. Use the most recent release of the SDK to integrate Intel® AMT into your application.
Manageability Developer Tool Kit (DTK): This is also a "solution" written in C# for Microsoft Windows. Since the Source Code is also available, it can also be used as "example code." This tool is also currently being updated and maintained. Use this to get a great idea of how Intel® AMT works. A lot of us also use it to verify if certain features are working.
Intel AMT Setup and Configuration Service (SCS) automates the task of populating Intel AMT platforms with credentials and parameters that enable them to be administered remotely. This provides the developer or ISV with the tools to set up and configure Intel AMT devices. The Setup and Configuration Service (SCS) allows for most aspects of setup and configuration to be completed through a remote management console. It supports end-user environments that implement TLS security and a DHCP network.
Intel AMT Reference Design Kit (RDK) includes a set of customizable, open-source software building blocks that developers can use to rapidly build Intel AMT console applications. This is an AMT "solution" written in Java on Linux provided to help developers implement Intel® AMT. It is very much like the DTK, only it is based on older versions of Intel® AMT. This tool is no longer being updated or maintained. Use it only as an example to get started in a Java environment.
Intel® WS-Management Java Client Library: A lightweight WS-Management protocol library designed for software developers who want to quickly and easily support WS-Man but want to avoid the complexity of writing their own Java-based WS-Man client library. The library's original intention was to support Intel® Active Management Technology development, but can be extended to support management of any CIM resource.
Intel® WS-Management Translator for vPro™ Processor Technology: Use the Intel® WS-Management Translator to send WS-Management commands to manage Intel® AMT platforms older than release 3.0, which understands only legacy SOAP-based protocol. The source code for this tool is also available for download.
Intel® vPro Technology Activator Utility is the next generation of the Remote Configuration tool. This is a Windows executable that runs locally on an Intel® Active Management technology(Intel AMT)-enabled platform.
Intel® AMT Open Source Drivers and Tools: Intel® AMT Linux support includes two components that allow interaction between the Intel® AMT FW and the Linux OS: Intel® MEI (Intel® Management Engine Interface) driver and LMS (Local Management Service) driver.
Intel AMT Add-on for Microsoft* SMS 2003: The Intel® AMT Add-on plug-in enables Microsoft* SMS 2003 to discover and manage Intel® VPro™ PCs remotely.
Intel AMT Management Pack for Microsoft OpsMgr and Essentials v3.0: This management pack enables the users of these applications to take advantage of the advanced, hardware-based system management capabilities of Intel® AMT, which are built into PCs with Intel® VPro™ processor technology.
Intel Desktop Boards Executive Series: Intel® Desktop Boards Executive Series are designed to offer new levels of manageability, security, and power-efficient performance while offering support for the Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family.
