I have been working quite a bit on "Enterprise Mode" lately. Currently, the Intel AMT Developer Tool Kit only supports "Small Business Mode" provisioning which is simple to setup but not as secure as Enterprise mode. The main difference between the two is that Enterprise mode optionally uses TLS for securing AMT connections. This of course requires that you setup trusted and signed certificates in both the management console and AMT.
"Wake on LAN" as the name suggests is a network standard that allows you to remotely (over a network connection) power up your computer when it is completely powered off -- well, assuming your computer is still connected to the power supply :-)
Just a quick word to say that version 0.19 of the Intel AMT Developer Tool Kit is online. People using the sample tools will find lots of improvements, but the major one is centered on development using components from the DTK. It was the topic of my last blog entry.
First off, Ajay just informed me that I now am the featured blogger! This is great; I am on the front page of the management community. Now, I have to get him to update the version of the DTK available on this site. Internally, I just released the DTK v0.20 with a few new exciting features and I am hoping to make them available to the community soon.
Tutorial videos that introduces the various Intel AMT capabilities using Intel AMT Developer Tool Kit (DTK) are now available for viewing. I personally learnt a lot by watching these videos and I am sure you will too. In this blog post I am listing out all the different videos available along with a brief description of the tutorial videos.
I learn new things about Intel AMT all the time. Yesterday I was trying to figure out why I kept getting "Not Permitted" error when trying to send a "Power Down" remote command. Someone inside Intel hinted that it may have something to do with Serial-over-LAN. After checking, it did! If you have SOL connected, you can't send a "power down" command. The version 0.20 of the "Intel AMT DTK" will have a fix; I will be releasing it inside Intel later today.
Well, it's been a few days now with the DTK being online. They are still working on getting the tutorial videos on the site and I think it will help a lot of people. Besides, I am sure everyone online can't wait to hear my voice.
