I'm doing a simple exercise using the Manageability Outpost Service included in the package Manageability_Developer_Tool_Kit_7_0_11340_2.msi.
I installed it on a HP 6200 Pro with Pentium G850 processor.
It seems that there's no way to kae the service working. Infact from another computer I take the remote control of this 6200 , I'm able to power it on and OFF but the SOL AGENT never answer, so I cannot execute from remote some commands like shutdown.
After several try I unistalled the Manageability_Developer_Tool_Kit_7_0_11340_2.msi and reinstalled the Manageability Outpost Service using the version included in this package Manageability_Developer_Tool_Kit_6_0_10314_2.MSI.
As soon as I started the Manageability OutPost Service Panel to configure it, the service started correctly and from Remote Console wehn you press Enter , you get the prompt from the SOL conenction and you can start command like the shutdown.
I'm wondering why latest version (7.x) of Manageability Developer Tool Kit has the Manageability OutPost Service that doesn't work with a PC that has the Intel Standard Manageability version 7.1 integrated in the motherboard.
I'm going to verify what happens with a PC HP 8200 with the AMT technology.
